I am pleased to announce that this coming Saturday December 15th, I will be presenting at the December meeting of the Ontario Genealogical Society Ottawa Branch (http://ogsottawa.on.ca/). My presentation will be on the subject of the Tunney's Pasture shantytown which I wrote about this past summer for the Kitchissippi Times. It will include a lot more detail and photos than I was able to squeeze into the newspaper article. I'll also speak a little to the research and genealogical challenges encountered while writing about a topic like this. My presentation is at 1:30 p.m. at the new City of Ottawa Archives building on Tallwood. It is free to attend, and open to the public. Please come out if you'd like to hear more!
