Courses

Toronto Branch courses are a great way to improve your research and organizing skills, learn about records in a specific geographic area, or increase your knowledge of your ancestor’s life and times.

Many courses are intended for beginners or those still learning the basic techniques of genealogy while some courses are aimed at people who have many years of experience who are looking to fine-tune a specific skill, enhance an area of knowledge, or just keep up-to-date. Each year Toronto Branch’s education committee plans a mixture of courses that will enable everyone to find something of interest. (And we’re always looking for new ideas.)

Courses can be as short as two weeks and as long as eight weeks. Occasionally, we pack a whole course into one day! But they’re always inspiring—and fun. Class sizes are kept small to allow discussion with your instructor and fellow students.

Our courses are popular! We recommend that you register early. It is quick and easy with our online system. You can pay with your credit card, PayPal account, or print the form and send us a cheque. (Just follow the links for each course.)

Members of Toronto Branch OGS are first in line to hear about educational events, and benefit from a lower registration fee. We’d love to have you join us!
