England and Wales: at home and on the move is the focus of the 27th (and second virtual) family history conference presented by the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO), to be held virtually from 28 September to 2 October 2022. Twelve expert speakers will discuss topics ranging from finding elusive ancestors in London, through using maps in your research, to domestic or international migration in and out of Wales. There will be stories of the plucky women who made new lives overseas after their husbands died in the Great War and life as a ship’s steward travelling the globe.
The conference will also feature a virtual Expo Hall, where you may make contact with organizations offering products or ideas to help your research. A bonus feature of the event is three Connect Sessions, where speakers, vendors or societies will be available for two hours to answer registrants’ questions or discuss their offerings.
The C$40 conference registration fee includes the 12 presentations, the Connect Sessions, and access to the presentation videos and handouts until 31 October. Visit the website
