Upcoming workshop on local history research


Jess Posgate will run a workshop on November 18th in Toronto, at the Ontario Genealogical Society day-long event From Kanata to Canada:

"In this session, we’ll look at where to find more than 200 years of Ontario’s local history in photos, documents, genealogical resources, oral histories, and more. Learn about ODW’s three main portals: OurOntario.ca, Ontario Community Newspapers, and Ontario GovDocs. Plus, we’ll explore some of the 150 local collection sites and how to bookmark 'what’s new' search results, add missing information, contribute comments or your personal items to local collections, and share your discoveries with colleagues and family members."

 
It's $70-$90 for the full day of programming. Check out the other great workshops!
