Winter 2018 courses (*Updated*)

The winter semester of Toronto Branch educational activities begins in January 2018 and we have four courses for you to choose from in the new year.

On either Wednesday mornings or Saturday mornings* in January, join Linda Reid for Introduction to Genetic Genealogy, a three-week course for genealogists who wish to confirm and expand their family trees with genetic evidence, particularly through Family Tree DNA tests.

Marian Press will survey and explain the many options for Putting Your Family Tree Online in a three-week course on Wednesday evenings in January and February.

Learn to navigate the land record collections at the Archives of Ontario and put your skills into practice under the guidance of Jane MacNamara in Hands-on Early Ontario Land Records, a three-week course on Thursday evenings in February.

And, if you are just starting out on your genealogical journey, don’t miss our fast-paced one-day course on Saturday February 10, Introduction to Genealogy and Family History — Linda Reid will review the essential records and techniques you’ll need to research your ancestry.

Registration is now open for all of the above courses. Visit our Learn with Toronto Branch pages for full details and to sign up online. We encourage you to register before the end-of-year rush to avoid disappointment. Space is limited in all of our educational events and they can fill up quickly.

* UPDATE: We’ve added a second session for this course due to popular demand. Now you can choose either the weekday or weekend option — whichever best suits your schedule.
