Finding Ontario Ancestors Workshop - Call for Papers

Finding Ontario Ancestors Workshop
Saturday, 6 August 2011
North York Central Library Auditorium

The Ontario Genealogical Society, Toronto Branch and the Canadiana Department of the North York Central Library will be co-hosting a one-day workshop on sources for Ontario family and local history research.
We are looking for speakers who would like to be part of the workshop.

The theme “Finding Ontario Ancestors” is broad, but presentations should emphasize sources. Your presentation could focus on a single type of record or source, a record group, or demonstrate how several sources can be used together.

You are invited to submit proposals for lectures on any aspect of Ontario genealogical or local history research that fits the above criteria.  Speakers will be paid an honorarium of $100 per lecture, plus modest expenses for travel and accommodation.
