A LECTURE AT ONTARIO GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY CONFERENCE 2018

From Bristol to Toronto: Documenting a Teenage Life
This case history explores the sources available for tracking an intrepid young immigrant to Toronto through his adolescence and early adulthood from about 1911 to 1924. Left to fend for himself at age14, he quickly learned to use the system and sometimes bend the rules. The session will look at the sources used to reveal a picture of his family’s life in England and during their sojourn in Canada, as well as some unique tools that helped build the story of his remarkable life in Ontario.
