A FULL DAY WORKSHOP

Saturday, November 18, 2017: Eglinton St George’s United Church

Sponsored by the Toronto Branch OGS

Join us in our special Canada 150 event as we explore the legacy of records our young country has created over time. Learn by what means First Nations ancestors can be traced and hear about the experiences of an early Irish settler family in Douro Township. Listen to the stories of the men who created both our Confederation and our constitution and their impact upon us today. Hone your genealogy skills by using the best way to navigate the ever expanding Library and Archives website.  See what resources can lead you to when and where your ancestors came to Canada and extract every morsel of information from census records. Discover the documents and narrative of Franco-Ontariennes. Witness the historical transformation of the Township of Etobicoke over time through the use of photographs. We will even show you how to gain access to over 200 years of free digitized records from Ontario’s past.
