This full day workshop is jointly sponsored by the Canadiana Department at the North York Central Library and the Toronto Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society.

Peggy's Cove lighthouseIf you have ancestors who lived in any of the four Atlantic Provinces, this one-day workshop could be for you. The keynote speaker at the workshop will be Terrence M. Punch from Halifax, an acknowledged expert on the subject. Workshop speakers will give lectures on the history and genealogy of the people in the region. There will be an emphasis on understanding the patterns and sources of immigration into the provinces over the past four hundred years as well as how and where people then moved from Atlantic Canada to other parts of Canada and to the United States.
