Invitation to Attend the 2007 OGS Annual Conference

E. Paul Morehouse, Jr., President of the Ohio Genealogical Society, has issued the following invitation to genealogists throughout Ohio and beyond:

"On behalf of the Officers and the Board of Trustees of The Ohio Genealogical Society, I invite you to attend the 2007 Annual Conference, "Along the National Road: Your Avenue to the Past" in Columbus on April 12-14, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.

"The 2007 program includes a broad range of presentations for all skill levels. We have scheduled over 50 programs with many nationally known speakers. In addition, the program committee has attempted to include some new faces to the OGS Conference, and we hope you will check them out. Workshops are also offered on Thursday evening for the early birds.

"The 2007 OGS Conference will offer you the opportunity to network with hundreds of other genealogists and historians. In addition, we will also have many genealogical exhibitors, OGS and Chapter displays offering the latest genealogical merchandise and publications.

"I hope you have considered applying for membership in one our three lineage societies: First Families of Ohio, Civil War Families, and Settlers and Builders of Ohio. All three societies will conduct induction ceremonies at the Conference. If you are interested in doing so, contact OGS for application forms.

"The Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Columbus is a great facility for our conference. It is not too far from the Ohio Historical Society.

"We expect this to be another great OGS Conference. We hope you will join us in a wonderful learning experience and have an opportunity to celebrate your ancestors' contribution to Ohio and American History. Come check out German Village and some of the other historic and cultural delights of Ohio's capital city!

"See you in Columbus!"
