Archives of Ontario WW1 Talks

To commemorate the centenary of WWI, the Archives of Ontario is hosting a series of engaging talks designed to connect Ontario residents with archival records related to the war – documents that tell the stories of ordinary Ontarians at this pivotal moment in the province’s history. Scholars, family historians and history buffs alike will find these talks stimulating, enlightening and a valuable aid for further exploration of the Archives’ extensive resources related to the First World War.
Delivered concurrently with the Archives newest onsite exhibit, Dear Sadie: Love, Lives, and Remembrance from Ontario’s First World War, this speakers series will be held on Thursday evenings from 6.30 p.m. to 7.45 p.m. in the George Spragge Classroom. Admission is free and a tour will be given of the new exhibit.
The first talk, on Thursday November 13, is by Jane MacNamara. More information and reservations at www.archives.gov.on.ca/en/about/speaker_series.aspx
