Learn to “Think Like a Genealogist”

Are you intrPortrait of two childrenigued by family history but not sure where to start? Or, if you’ve been at it for a while, are you feeling as though you might need a refresher on techniques and resources? Our fall course, Basic Genealogy and Family History, may be just what you need to get your genealogy on track.

This course – taught by long-time Toronto Branch member Jane E. MacNamara – will run from 8 October to 26 November, on Wednesday afternoons, at North York Central Library. In those eight classes, we’ll cover all the basics of family history research, both online and at libraries and archives, and we’ll show you how to organize your results. We’ll review types of records, where to find them and how to evaluate and build on what you discover. The classes are relaxed, with lots of time to ask questions and share your research with fellow students.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to “think like a genealogist”.
