Call For Papers

BIFHSGO is seeking proposals for presentations at its 18th annual conference.

14-16 September 2012

Celebrate your Anglo-Celtic roots and share your family history knowledge and stories.

This year's focus is on Scotland. In addition to presentations on the them, we are also open to proposals for other presentations likely to hold the interest of members including:
writing and preserving family history
social networking
technology and genetics/DNA discoveries
case studies that illuminate social trends and illustrate good genealogical practice
Talks are 55 minutes long, plus time for the introduction and questions for a total of 75 minutes.

Submissions:
Each proposal should include on one page: presentation title; an abstract of 200 words; a one- or two-sentence description of your talk for the seminar brochure; your audiovisual requirements; your full name, postal address, telephone number, and e-mail address; a 100-150 word biography; whether your lecture would be aimed at genealogists working at the beginner (general), intermediate or advanced (specialist) level. Indicate your willingness to provide a 2-4 page summary of your talk, including references and web addresses mentioned, as a handout.

Remuneration:
Remuneration will normally include free registration, free lunches and an honorarium. For speakers making multiple presentations and coming from a distance reimbursement for travel and accommodation expenses will be negotiated.

Deadline:
To be considered as a presenter, please submit a brief outline of your proposed talk(s) to conference@bifhsgo.ca no later than 31 January 2012.
