Library & Archives Canada (LAC) holds multiple millions of highly prized national records. The LAC has curated two repositories of special interest to genealogists and historians, Canadiana and more recently Héritage. This 3-week course will show you how to think like an archivist by searching the LAC website to your best advantage and then applying your results to further your research in Canadiana and Héritage. This hands-on class will be using early 19th century Ontario records as examples. The skills learned can then be applied to your own research.
