What better time than spring to start something new! Toronto Branch is pleased to announce that we will be offering a full-day workshop and a three-week course in June of 2014 to help you gain new family history skills…
Our spring learning season will begin this year with a Saturday workshop on Family Tree Maker – if you use or are thinking of using FTM to record your family history research, don’t miss this chance to find out how to get the most out of this powerful software. Shortly after the workshop, we’ll present a hands-on course on using photography in family history – how to take and find pictures, how to enhance, organize and store digital images, and how to incorporate them in family trees and written histories.
Visit our Learn with Toronto Branch page to find out more about our programs and instructors and to register on-line.
The next Toronto Branch meeting of 2014 will take place on Monday 24 March beginning at 7:30 in the evening at the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto (convenient access from the North York subway station).
Our own Marian Press will be our featured speaker. Although academic institutions may not be the first places family historians think of when planning a research trip, they are in fact leading the way in the digitization of research materials. And, as we’ll find out from Marian, more and more academic digitization projects are proving to be directly relevant to family history! The title of her presentation will be: “How Academic Institutions are Helping Genealogists: Free Digital Projects That Family Historians Should Know About“.
After our mid-meeting break (a great time to find out about upcoming Branch courses, workshops and other activities), Sue Henderson will treat us to a short additional presentation on “HERstory, not history – My Family’s Famous Females“. Hope you can join us!
