Late summer lectures!

Registration is now open for a new value-packed series of Toronto Branch lectures on Ontario records and research! These lectures will take place on four evenings in August, all online.

Our Late Summer Lecture Series will kick off on Tuesday August 18 with Jane E. MacNamara speaking about Ontario Records on FamilySearch — how to search for records and digital images, and make the most of what you discover.

On Wednesday August 19, Janice Nickerson will present Upper Canada Sundries: An Under-used Genealogy Goldmine — a recently digitized treasure trove of genealogical and biographical information on early Ontarians.

The following week, on Tuesday August 25, Linda Corupe will introduce us to the records of The Heir & Devisee Commissions of Upper Canada — an invaluable resource for researching early settlers in the province.

And, last but not least, on Wednesday August 26, Ruth Burkholder will demonstrate ways of Enhancing your Research with Find a Grave — how to find and verify what others have contributed, and grow your family tree.

Each session in the series will begin at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) and include an hour-long presentation and an opportunity to ask questions, as well as speaker notes. Closed-captioned recordings will be available to registrants until September 15.

The first session is free to everyone. You can attend any subsequent session for just $10 (or $8 if you are a member of the Ontario Genealogical Society). Or take advantage of our Full Series package price and get full access to all four lectures for only $25 ($20 for OGS members).
