September Courses & Irish Workshop

Summer may be just underway, but here at Toronto Branch we are already gearing up for autumn with a full array of educational programs planned.

researcher-clipart-research_iconSeptember will be a busy month, with a three-session course taught by Carol Nichols on how to make the most of Ancestry.ca Library Edition running on Wednesday afternoons. Carol’s course, titled Hands-On Ancestry.ca Library Edition will be followed by three drop-in sessions at the Toronto Reference Library, again on Wednesday afternoons, where you can practice your Ancestry.ca skills with the help of volunteers from the Toronto Branch Members Network.

On Friday 18 September, we’ll present a special two-hour afternoon lecture by professional genealogist Chris Paton on his research into the hardships endured by our Scottish ancestors.

And on Saturday 19 September, Chris will be back with us together with historian Dr. William Roulston for a full-day workshop on Irish Genealogy—Focus on Ulster. This workshop is aimed at family historians researching ancestors in the nine counties in the historic province of Ulster, but many of the topics discussed will be of relevance to Irish research generally.

We are now accepting registrations for all of the above courses and events. Visit our Learn with Toronto Branch pages for program details and to sign up online. We expect to open registration for October and November courses in late July.
