The August 2014 edition of Families, the journal of the Ontario Genealogical Society, has just been published, and there are six articles in this issue.
The first prize in the Keffer Writing Contest this year goes to H. Nancy Holder and her article entitled, Who was Hannah FOSTER?
We find out that the author is from Arkansas, and that much to her surprise, she discovered that her great-grandmother was from Ontario!
This year's winner of the 2014 Mike Brede Genealogical Essay Prize was Chelsea H. Meloche, a graduate student at the University of Waterloo, for her winning essay, Genealogy in the Digital Age: A Beginner’s Commentary.
She wrote this article as a “newbie” who got caught up in the merry-go-round of online databases, and she wondered how new researchers will do in this world of instant genealogy.
