April 2021 Online Lectures: The Many Stories of Toronto

Registration is now open for a new online Toronto Branch lecture series exploring the city’s diverse heritage.

These lectures are free and anyone may attend, but advance registration is required.

People from all over the world have come to call Toronto home, and the journeys, experiences and history of our Toronto ancestors are immensely varied. Over four evenings in April, our expert speakers will each tell you about their research into some of The Many Stories of Toronto:

Wednesday April 21
Proudly Indo-Caribbean: A Transnational Journey Through Indentured Servitude
Lecturer: Bhonita Singh

Thursday April 22
Bonded for Life: Tracing the Genealogies of the Enslaved Families in Early Ontario
Lecturer: Natasha Henry

Wednesday April 28
Discovering My Roots: A Chinese Canadian Perspective
Lecturer: Arlene Chan

Thursday April 29
Reconstructing a Homeland: Armenian Immigration and Settlement in Toronto
Lecturer: Cassandra Tavukciyan

Each session will begin at 7:00 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) and will consist of an hour-long presentation and an opportunity to ask questions. The sessions will be recorded so if you can’t join in at the scheduled time, you won’t miss out.
