Winter 2017 Courses

The holiday season is almost here… and so is a new season of learning with Toronto Branch! Here’s a quick look at what we have lined up for our winter 2017 term…

If you’ve taken an autosomal DNA test and are wondering what your next steps should be, be sure to sign up for our three-week Introduction to Genetic Genealogy course with instructor Linda Reid on Tuesday evenings in January. You’ll learn how to use genetic evidence to confirm and expand your family tree.

Would you like to learn how to locate estate files and mine the valuable clues they can contain? Consider joining instructor Jane E. MacNamara for Hands-on Records of Inheritance, a three-session course at the Archives of Ontario on Thursday evenings in January and February. Sharpen your research skills with expert guidance.

New to genealogy? Or feeling a little rusty? Don’t miss our fast-paced Introduction to Genealogy and Family History on Saturday March 25. Linda Reid will review essential record types and techniques for researching your ancestors.

And that’s not all… We’ve also arranged three guided tours of key Toronto repositories.

We’ll be spending two Thursday afternoons at the Toronto Reference Library — on January 19, we’ll be visiting the Genealogy Collection, and, on  February 23, we’ll be exploring the Marilyn & Charles Baillie Special Collections Centre. Then, on Tuesday March 21, we’re planning a full day at the City of Toronto Archives. These tours are free, but space is limited, so you will need to register in advance.

We are now accepting registrations for all of the above courses and tours. Visit our Learn with Toronto Branch pages for program details and to sign up online.
