Spring forward!

The spring 2018 semester of Toronto Branch learning activities will be here before you know it. Registration is now open for a practical hands-on course on making technology work for you in your family history research, as well as two key repository tours — all at the Toronto Reference Library beginning in April.

Over four evening sessions between May 3 and June 4, instructor Carol Nichols will present Using Your iPad & iPhone for Genealogy. This course will help you use your devices as effectively as possible. Learn about apps that will make it easier for you to find, capture, organize, enhance and share information, pictures and sound.

On the morning of Saturday April 21, visit the TRL Map Collections and discover the range of maps available to help you in your research — from historic ordnance surveys to county atlases to topographical and nautical maps. On the morning of Friday May 4, explore the TRL Genealogy Collection, one of the largest in Canada — find out what resources it holds and how to search the various catalogues and indexes. Stay after the tour to do some hands-on research with assistance from a Branch volunteer. Our tours are free but you must register to reserve a space.

And, if you haven’t yet signed up for our spring workshop on Saturday April 7, The Art of Genetic Genealogy Investigation with Blaine Bettinger, now is the time. Registrations are still being accepted for this full day devoted to the analysis of DNA test results to further your family history, as well as Blaine’s Advanced Lectures in Genetic Genealogy on the afternoon of Friday April 6, but there are only a few spaces left. Don’t miss out!
