"African Roots in Canada" - Toronto, Aug 9th
On Saturday, August 9, 2008, The Ontario Genealogical Society, Toronto Branch, the Canadiana Department of North York Central Library, and the Ontario Black History Society present "AFRICAN ROOTS IN CANADA," a summer workshop about family history sources and research techniques.

Whether you're a seasoned family history researcher or just starting to investigate your ancestors, and whether your family has lived in Canada for 20 or 200 years, you'll enjoy this informal, late-summer day of shared stories and new insights into researching ancestors with African roots, and the opportunity to meet others who share your interests.
Speakers include yours truly (Lisa B. Lee), Jerome Teelucksingh from Trinidad, Carl Finkle of the King Township Historical Society, Dorothy Kew of Burlington, Ontario, Janie Cooper-Wilson of Collingwood, Ontario, and Hilary Dawson of Toronto.
