A THREE SESSION COURSE:
January 26, February 2 and 9
Space is limited. Please register early.

Finding your Ontario ancestor’s will or administration can provide vital information to link him or her to other family members. In this hands-on course held at the Archives of Ontario, participants will follow assigned case histories to learn how to navigate the finding aids (and idiosyncratic numbering systems) to find estate files in the various Ontario courts, and land registry records—and to understand what is found.

Participants will work in small groups and will be expected to complete a short reading for each class.

Co-sponsored by Toronto Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society and the Archives of Ontario.
