Fireworks in Toronto?

On November 5 I won't be in England celebrating Guy Fawkes day with fireworks. There will be fireworks, perhaps not literally, when OGS Toronto Branch stages an

ENGLISH FAMILY HISTORY WORKSHOP


I'll be travelling to Toronto to present three talks, Researching Early 20th Century British Immigrants to Canada, Find Your British Family History in Newspapers, and Some Lesser-known Websites for British Family History. They are updated versions of talks I gave in British Columbia last year.

Ottawa colleague Lesley Anderson, who was also in BC, will be presenting English Parish Records, and British Directories. 

I'm proud to on the same program with leading Toronto family historians Linda Reid presenting Solving Genealogical Problems Using English Probate Records; Paul Jones (The Genealogical Use and Abuse of English Gazetteers: Finding, assessing and using them in family history research), and Jane E. MacNamara (According to the Custom of the Manor: An Introduction to English Manorial Records). 

The venue is the North York Central Library Auditorium, 5120 Yonge Street, Toronto. 


I`m looking forward to it, and to meeting some loyal Toronto area blog readers.
