Monday Evening Webinars: Your Choice

On Monday, 26 February, you have the luxury (or challenge) of choice.

At 7 pm, Sudbury District Branch invites everyone to well-known speaker Dave Obee‘s presentation Canadiana’s genealogical treasures.
Dave explains it this way, “The Canadiana website has a vast amount of material for family historians, but not many use it or even know about it. Canadiana’s rich genealogy and local history collection includes local and family histories, telling of pioneering, settlement, and local government in early Canada. The focus on individuals and communities makes the collection an ideal genealogical resource, helping people explore the experiences of previous generations and leaving clues about their wider social and cultural background. Related documents include voters lists, eulogies, directories and gazettes, biographies, civil service lists, published diaries, church magazines and pamphlets, militia lists, publications from professional and trade societies, school publications, and more. This talk is your guide to mining the 40 million pages of primary-source documents.”

At 7:30 pm, popular presenter Thomas MacEntee will be returning to OGS Toronto Branch with his presentation Building a Genealogy Research Toolbox. You’ll learn about some of the most important online resources for genealogical research and how to organize them into an easy-to-access and portable virtual toolbox.
After Thomas’ talk Branch member Beth Adams will share her husband’s grandfather’s story and how it was discovered that he had been a British Home Child in the presentation Grandpa’s Secret.
