Kanata to Canada workshop

We know that fall is a busy time and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on our special Canada 150 workshop on Saturday November 18. So we’ve extended the early registration deadline to give you a little extra breathing room.

You now have until Tuesday October 31 to take advantage of our early bird discounts for Kanata to Canada: A Journey Through Time. This full-day workshop offers six speakers and nine sessions, each exploring a different aspect of this country’s history since Confederation, the legacy of records created in the past 150 years, and strategies for researching both First Nations and immigrant ancestors. We’ve limited registration for this event to keep classes small and interactive.

Find out more about the day’s program and speakers and reserve your spot today.
