The following announcement was written by the Toronto Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society:
The Toronto Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society and the Canadiana Department of the North York Central Library will be co-hosting a one-day workshop on Scottish family history research in Toronto on November 10.
We are looking for speakers who would like to be part of the workshop.
You are invited to submit proposals for lectures on any aspect of genealogical research about the Scottish in Canada, in Scotland, or in any part of the world.
Workshop attendees will be most interested in lectures emphasizing sources and research techniques that might be useful in their own research. We need lectures at all levels of expertise. Each lecture should be about 50 minutes in duration. Speakers will also be expected to supply a handout to summarize or complement their presentation, which we will copy for all registrants.
Speakers will be paid an honorarium of $100 per lecture, plus modest expenses.
Please submit your lecture proposals by e-mail. Please keep them brief and informal, at this point. (We may ask for more details later.) Be sure to include your mailing address, phone number, and a brief bio.
Deadline for Proposals: JULY 16, 2007
