Assuming the Internet gods smile on us, we’ll be joined this week by Glenn Wright and John D Reid who will help answer your questions. Glenn had a long career as an archivist and has a special interest in Canadians who served in the Great War. John is probably best know for his blog `Canada’s Anglo-Celtic Connections’ and his interest in using newspapers fro genealogical research.

In order to do our bit for social distancing and to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Ottawa Branch and the Ottawa Public Library have temporarily switched over to a Virtual Genealogy Drop In. Share research strategies & discover what resources are available for your research. Volunteers from The Ontario Genealogical Society will be here to answer questions & help you get the most from on-line resources.

We will use Google Meet and you can join the meeting with this link:
