My Roots, Your Roots, Our Ontario Roots: The Keynote Lecture Tonight

 My Roots, Your Roots, Our Ontario Roots:

At the opening session for the virtual Ontario Ancestors Annual Conference, Janice Nickerson gave a very inspiring keynote speech about diversity, inclusion, marginalization and the imbalance of the lack of diversity of members involved in our hobby of genealogy in Ontario. It was an amazing talk which included many hints on what can be done to redress this imbalance. As soon as it finished, I felt the need to explore Durham Region's history and makeup of our population. Five minutes of Googling found the following links: - Land Acknowledgement from Durham College

I challenge other readers of this blog to find further links that explore Durham Region's diversity! Please post in the comments.
