A one day conference with two greater presenters on two diverse topics ;
Leslie Anderson will speak about how to use "Ancestry" and all the good
things can be found on their site, while J. Brian Gilchrist will take the
counter-point and talk about why it is not, and maybe never will be all
available online? Presented by the Wellington County Branch of the Ontario
Genealogical Society and Wellington County Museum and Archives

Aboyne Hall, Wellington County Museum and Archives, 0536 Wellington Road 18
