OAKVILLE’S FIRST ANNUAL FAMILY HISTORY FAIR
10:00am to 4:00pm

To glean all the information they offer, and to understand their limitations, it is useful to know a bit about the origins and history of directories, how and why they were compiled, types of directories available, and where you can find them today.
