This course is jointly sponsored by the Humanities and Social Science Department at the Toronto Reference Library and the Toronto Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society.

This course will be on two Tuesdays: May 30 and June 6, 2017.

Registration is required.  Registration is now open.

Are you looking for an easy, engaging way to tell your family stories?  In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to take their family history materials such as photos, maps, documents or video clips to create a video (with music and commentary) using the free program Adobe Spark.  Participants are asked to bring materials with them on a USB key (thumb drive) to use in preparing their own video.   In the first week we’ll cover the basics of creating your video; the second week we’ll get into more advanced features and we’ll include time to trouble-shoot your specific video.  To save time, please create an Adobe account (it’s free) before the first class.
