New Imprint from Dundurn and the OGS

Dundurn Press and the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) have teamed up to create a joint imprint to publish books on Canadian genealogy. Authors who are interested in publishing with the imprint should contact the OGS. Read the press release below for more details.

TORONTO, December 18, 2008 -- Dundurn Press and the Ontario Genealogical Society announce the creation of a joint imprint to publish books on Canadian genealogy. The imprint, to be called OGS Dundurn, will be governed by representatives from both organizations. OGS will be responsible for finding authors, receiving manuscripts, and initial screening. Dundurn will be responsible for editing, design, and production. Both organizations will be responsible for marketing: OGS within the genealogical community, Dundurn to bookstores.

Kirk Howard, President and Publisher, Dundurn Press, said “As a long-time member of the OGS, I have admired the many ways in which the OGS connects with the genealogical community. In working together to publish books of genealogical significance we will build on this success and be able to reach a wider readership.”

“Our partnership with Dundurn Press will provide those in the genealogical community with new resource material,” said Don Hinchley, President of OGS. “We hope to encourage new authors through this partnership.”

Dundurn Press has for over 35 years published books of Canadian interest. Based in Toronto, it markets books worldwide.

The Ontario Genealogical Society is Canada’s largest with over 4 500 members and 31 branches across Ontario. It is Canada’s largest genealogical publisher with over 5 000 titles.

Authors interested in publishing with the new imprint should contact OGS at provoffice@ogs.on.ca. We particularly like to see books at the concept stage.
