Toronto Branch of the OGS has just issued a Call for Presentations for a fall workshop titled “Tracing Forward - Searching for Relatives in Recent Times”.
The aim of this workshop, to be held on Saturday 26 October, is to offer new ideas, skills or tools to help researchers trace members of their expanded family trees, people who might still be alive or recently deceased. We are hoping to receive proposals from professional genealogists, family historians, private investigators, legal experts and heir searchers.
The deadline for proposals is Friday 31 May.
The website is at www.torontofamilyhistory.org
