#OGS2016Toronto Conference – Blogging Beads

The Ontario Genealogical Society Conference was held from June 3rd to 5th. I also attended the OCAPG pre-conference on June 2nd.

As many of you who read this blog already know I handed out “Blogging Beads” to those who write a genealogy blog. I wasn’t sure how many I would get. My blog and Twitter promotions highlighted a few people who were bloggers and attending conference. A few found me during the conference and I found a few others.

This tradition was started by Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers. I asked him if I could start the same tradition at the OGS 2015 Conference in Barrie and he kindly agreed. We had the pleasure of Thomas’ attendance at the conference as a speaker for both OGS and OCAPG. I like to make sure I give him the first set of beads so he got his on Thursday. Then I started hunting for bloggers!

If you received beads and are not on the list please contact me and you will be added to the list. If you were at conference and our paths never crossed please leave a comment below with a link to your blog and I will update the list.

Here is a list of bloggers who received beads this year. You will also find a link to their blogs so please go and visit them.
