Last Minute: Glenn Wright Military Presentation to Leeds & Grenville Branch

Today, Monday 1 March 2021, at 7 pm, Leeds & Grenville Branch of OGS/Ontario Ancestors will host an online presentation from military historian and genealogist Glenn Wright entitled Advance!  Suggestions for Researching Our Military Ancestors in 19th Century Ontario.

"Advance! is the motto of the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa and in this presentation, Glenn hopes that his suggestions for researching your military ancestor in the 19th century will lead you to new discoveries. We will look at the most important resources for military events such as the War of 1812-1815, the 1837 Rebellion, the Fenian Raids, 1866-1870, the Northwest Resistance, 1885 and finally, the South African War, 1899-1902. The role and the relevant records of the Militia, the British Army in Canada and Canada’s Permanent Force will also be described."
