OGS Toronto Branch adds course

I almost feel like writing "Where does Jane get all that energy?" And the same for OGS Toronto Branch. I received a note on yet another Branch offering this fall.

“Hands-On Early Ontario Land Records” is a three-session course to be taught by author, educator and long-time OGS member Jane MacNamara. Designed for both family and local historians, this course will provide an introduction to the land granting process and the main types of Crown Lands records. Participants will learn how to use the various finding aids and collections at the Archives of Ontario (including those on microfilm from Library and Archives Canada) to document a person’s acquisition of (or attempt to acquire) land in Upper Canada, and will work in small groups following case histories through the records.

Course Fee: $90 ($78 for OGS members)
Schedule: Thursdays November 28, December 5 and 12, 2013, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
Venue: Archives of Ontario, 134 Ian MacDonald Blvd., York University, Toronto
