Hands-on Records of Inheritance @ Archives of Ontario | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

This course is jointly sponsored by the Archives of Ontario and Toronto Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society.

The course will be on three Tuesdays: February 5, 12, & 19, 2019

Registration is now closed.

Finding your Ontario ancestor’s will or administration can provide vital information to link him or her to other family members. In this 3-session course participants will follow assigned case histories to learn how to navigate the finding aids and numbering systems to find estate files in  Ontario courts, and land registry records—and to understand what is found.

Registrants will work in small groups and will be expected to do some background reading for each class. (Assignments will be distributed by email.) It is important that participants commit to attending and participating in all three sessions.

Course Instructor: Jane E. MacNamara
Jane E. MacNamara is the author of Inheritance in Ontario: Wills and other Records for Family Historians (OGS/ Dundurn, 2013) and writes about genealogy at wherethestorytakesme.ca.
