Call for Speakers

Toronto Branch has issued a Call for Speakers to take part in a full-day workshop for family historians on the social, economic and cultural effects of England’s Industrial Revolutions. The workshop will take place on Saturday 1 November 2014.

Potential speakers—professional genealogists, historians, family historians, librarians and archivists—are invited to submit proposals for presentations related to Industrial England, particularly during the period from 1750 to 1870. Possible topics could include migration to the cities, changes in occupations, effects of industrialization on rural communities, and changes in social organizations, cultural life, religion and education.

The deadline for proposals for this workshop is Friday, 30 May 2014.

For further information about the workshop and to find out how to make a submission, please download the full Call for Speakers.
