Coming to OGS Conference 2018 in Guelph

One of the speakers at the next OGS Conference I'd not heard of is Melanie McComb.
Melanie is the Social Media Coordinator for the non-profit NextGen Genealogy Network; OGS recently became a funding partner. I know little about NextGen beyond the name—perhaps as its a community of young genealogists.
I'd expected Melanie, who lives in Syracuse, NY, to be speaking on social media, so the topic of her first talk, Prince Edward Island Repositories and Records with a focus on Irish immigrants came as a surprise. It turns out her father's Irish family came through the province.
Her second talk is How to Incorporate NextGen Tech Into Your Research.
Find out more at her blog The Shamrock Genealogist.
