OGS Toronto Branch May Meeting: Legal Research for Family Historians by Gwyneth Pearce

The OGS Toronto Branch, on 28 May 2012 at 7:15 p.m features a presentation on Legal Research for Family Historians by Gwyneth Pearce.
Case law and legislative documents are staples of traditional legal research. But they can also provide valuable leads for family historians. This presentation will point out some of the key free on-line resources for legal research, demonstrate techniques for researching court and tribunal decisions as well as the Canada and Ontario Gazettes, and offer examples of genealogical finds in legal collections.
There is also a mini-presentation by Guylaine Petrin on The Importance of the Mother's Maiden Name.
