Archives of Ontario: What's in it for me? @ Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

Speaker: Jane MacNamara

The Archives of Ontario is a rich source for family history. You can find records of birth, marriage, death, and divorce, land records, and estate files, but that’s just scratching the surface. There is only a handful of records that are indexed by name online. The rest must be found using online and on-site finding aids. This presentation will help you understand how archival records are organized and “described” and demonstrate how you can get the most from the AO’s Archive Descriptive Database. There will be “insider” tips for both new and seasoned researchers–and many techniques will be applicable to any modern archives.

Mini-presentation: Irena Lewycka and Dawn Connolly: Self-Publish your Family History or Memoirs at the Toronto Reference Library using Asquith Press Book Printing Service
