Winter 2015 Courses

Toronto Branch is pleased to announce that we will be offering three courses as well as a special forum to keep you learning over the winter months.

If you’ve already done a lot of family history research, and are ready to take the plunge and go to print with your work, our half-day course on Saturday 21 February 2015 called “Publish Before You Perish” may be just what you need. Instructor Nancy Conn will show you how to organize your material, design a layout, choose a publisher, market your book and more.

If you’re just starting out on your genealogical travels, our fast-paced course “Introduction to Genealogy and Family History“, on Saturday 28 March, will help you ensure you’re on the right track. Instructor Linda Reid will orient you to key records and demonstrate techniques for extracting and evaluating data, and making the most of your family history research.

Researchers at all levels will benefit from a course running on three consecutive Wednesday evenings from March 4 to 18 on “Using Digital Newspapers for Genealogical Research“. Find out from instructor Marian Press how to find historical newspapers online, and how to use them to flesh out your family history.

And last but not least, please join us for a special interactive forum, “Welcome to Our World: A Day with Top Toronto Genealogists and Family Historians” on Saturday 21 February. This will be a chance to meet some of Toronto’s top genealogists and family historians and find out from the experts what this fascinating field is all about and why it has them hooked.  The speakers will be Elayne Lockhart, Carol Nichols, Janice Nickerson, Guylaine Pétrin and James F.S. Thomson. A light lunch will be included.

Registration for all of these courses will be opening soon. Visit our Courses page to find out more about our programs and instructors and how to register on-line.
