I am Teaching Two Hispanic Research Sessions at OGS 2018 in Columbus

Ohio Genealogical Society 2018 Conference Logo

The Ohio Genealogical Society opened up registration this past Monday (Cyber Monday) for its 2018 Conference in Columbus, Ohio this coming April.

This will be my first time speaking at this conference, and my first time visiting Ohio.

My mother’s Flanagan and Lynch lines settled in Bellaire, Ohio and Wheeling, West Virginia (located across the Ohio River from each other) after immigrating from Ireland in the 1880s, so I look forward to the conference and to a post-conference road trip across the state.

The Conference

The Conference takes place Wednesday, April 11, 2018 – Saturday, April 14, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus.

Our mission is to explore real-life problems and techniques that are relevant and applicable to your research straight away. This three-day, multi-track event, featuring the nation’s genealogical leaders, offers the methodology and resources for genealogists at every skill level to have a focused and fun learning experience.
