"African Roots in Canada" Workshop

"African Roots in Canada" Workshop
9 August 2008
North York Central Library Auditorium
5120 Yonge Street, Toronto

On August 9, the Toronto Branch of the Ontario
Genealogical Society and the Canadiana Department
of the North York Central Library will co-host a
one-day workshop on family history research for
Canadians with ancestral ties to Africa, and the
African Diaspora in Canada, the USA, West Indies,
and throughout the world. We are looking for
speakers who would like to participate.

You are invited to submit proposals for lectures
on any aspect of African genealogical or social
history research in Canada and/or the countries of
origin or intermediate settlement including (but
not limited to) sources, research techniques,
historical background, migration or settlement in
Canada or other parts of the world, libraries,
archives and online resources. The emphasis will
be on individuals or groups who arrived in Canada
prior to 1970.

Workshop attendees will be most interested in
lectures emphasizing sources and research
techniques that might be useful in their own
research. We are looking for both highly focused
and more general presentations directed toward
researchers of various skill levels. Each session
will be one hour long, including five or ten
minutes for questions. Presentations should be
illustrated-we can provide a computer projector or
an overhead projector. Speakers will also be
expected to provide a handout of supporting
material (up to four pages) which we will copy for
all registrants.

Speakers will be paid an honorarium of $100 per
lecture, plus modest expenses for travel and

Please submit your lecture proposals by e-mail.
Keep them brief and informal at this point. (We
may ask for more details later.) Be sure to
include your mailing address, phone number, and a
brief bio.
