A week in June for hands-on research: Genealogy Summer Camp

As the darkest days of winter approach, turn your thoughts to balmy days in June and Genealogy Summer Camp. In Toronto, we’re lucky to have a wonderful cluster of archives and libraries. They are filled with information about ancestors who lived in Ontario. It is a great city for family history researchers to visit.

Genealogy Summer Camp can help you make the best use of your time in Toronto by suggesting what records to look for and where, and helping you navigate the various systems and finding aids at each repository.

You’ll spend less time finding the archives and more time finding information!

Summer Camp is a group experience. The group is small and friendly. Campers have come from as far as California and England, but they might also be locals who have jumped at the chance to devote their week to research.

Campers have the opportunity to stay at the Massey College residence, a very reasonably priced, leafy haven on the downtown University of Toronto campus. Each day, the group travels by public transit to an archives or library. There’s a tour and/or tutorial to start the day, followed by lots of time to dig into your own research with our help.

The long summer evenings are great for visiting ancestral haunts, socializing with fellow Campers or taking in some of the sights and special events in Toronto.

Genealogy Summer Camp 2018, June 4 to 8, is now fully booked!
