Gwyneth Pearce sent me a reminder from the Toronto Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society about the workshop on “Finding Your Great War Ancestors”, which is now just a few weeks away. I'm sure she won't mind if I pass it on.
This day-long workshop is jointly presented with the Canadiana Department of North York Central Library, and will take place on Saturday 31 March 2012 at the North York Memorial Community Hall, with convenient access from the North York Centre subway station. Participants can choose one of three concurrent lecture streams – British Research, Canadian Research and “Case Studies and Curios” – or mix and match the topics that interest them the most. It will be an opportunity to learn from some of the world’s leading Great War experts, including Simon Fowler, one of Britain’s top family history teachers, writers and researchers.Speaker and registration details are available on the Toronto Branch website at www.torontofamilyhistory.org.
I notice there has been a change in the program with Tim Cook no longer participating.
