Call for Papers
The Kawartha Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society is hosting the second annual Kawartha Conference in Peterborough, Saturday, Oct 3. The theme is:
We seek papers on all aspects of the settlement of British discharged military in Ontario. In particular we seek papers that comment on:
- the situation (economic and political) in the UK that caused military people to emigrate
- the military situation in Canada that encouraged military settlers
- the economic situation in Canada
- how the military emigration took place
- the results
- where the documentation is
It is a one-day conference with five speakers, each of one hour.
Please send a brief outline of your paper to <firstname.lastname@example.org> by Apr 30.
Upcoming Meetings and Events
MARK YOUR CALENDAR
There will be no meetings in January, February or March. Our collection continues to be available by appointment during regular business hours of the de la Fosse Library.
April is traditionally the month for our bus trip to the Ontario Archives. As per our February Newsletter, we requested anyone interested in going on the trip to please contact Alvina Seawright by March 1st, in order for us to review the numbers and decide if we would proceed with the trip this year. To date we have not received a high enough response to warrant the arrangement of a bus, thus the trip will not take place in April this year.
