This special event is an opportunity to hear a lecture by Geoffrey Doherty, an Australian social historian, on “Finding Your Australian Cousins – A Guide to Online Resources”. The lecture will be preceded by a buffet dinner that will provide the opportunity to speak with Geoffrey informally.

The lecture and dinner are being made available exclusively to Toronto Branch members. Due to the event location, registration numbers are limited. REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED.

Not all your ancestors’ brothers and sisters came to Canada and the US. Some went to places like Australia.  Some went there because they wanted to but many went unwillingly as Convicts. Most people who travelled to Australia stayed there and had many descendants. Geoffrey Doherty’s lecture will highlight online Australian sources at both National and State level that can help you to find your missing ‘Cousins’.
