THE HIDDEN GENEALOGICAL TREASURES IN OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM
presented by Don Hinchley
The Ontario Government enacted legislation in 1874 requiring compulsory education to age sixteen. As a genealogist, examining the education system will reveal much information to broaden the scope of your research.
This presentation is intended to assist you in your research by revealing some of the sources not readily apparent to those whose exposure to the educational system did not extend past being a student.
