Ottawa Branch OGS May Meeting

Friends, Romans and Countrymen. Here's one I especially hope you'll attend.

Come to the Ottawa City Archives, 100 Tallwood, at 1pm on Saturday 27 May when I'll be speaking about "Researching Second World War British Child Evacuees to Canada"

If your children were in danger how far would you go to protect them?
That was a question faced by parents in England, Scotland and Wales in June 1940 when the opportunity came to have children in vulnerable areas evacuated overseas, away from bombling and likely invasion. What was the impact on the children, and on Canada?

If unable to attend in person you may be able to attend via webinar. Check out the details here.

Make a day of it.
The Scottish interest group will get together at 10am when Pam Cooper will speak on Scottish City resources, concentrating on Glasgow
At 10:30 am in the educational Back to Basics session Gloria Tubman will speak on "Quebec Records."
The Computer interest group will meet at about 3 pm.
