Heritage Mississauga is pleased to announce our 2018 Genealogy Workshop Series with Ruth Blair. These workshops are of interest to the historians in the family who want to explore their familial genealogy or have a general interest in genealogy and expert tips on research strategies and resources.

Each session is $25.00 but Heritage Mississauga is offering a special rate of $70.00 for enrollment in all three sessions.

Workshops:

“World War 1: In Search of the Men and Women Who Served Using 21st Century Technology”
February 10, 2018  - 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.


How can you find information on those who served in the First World War? Resources to find military service records and other documentation will be presented for Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and the United States.  Which records survived and which ones perished?


Full Day Workshop
April 14, 2018 – 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

“Scottish Research from a Far”
The pay per view website ScotlandsPeople.com is usually the first stop for anyone researching their Scottish family history online. This lecture will take you through the process of using ScotlandsPeople and show how using other resources to help narrow down your search will enable you to use ScotlandsPeople in a more cost effective manner. Other online resources that can assist you with your Scottish research will also be examined. If you can’t go to Scotland to research your family then this lecture will help you find out what is available online for Scottish research.

“Taking Your Irish Ancestors Back over the Pond”
Researching your Irish Canadian ancestors can be a frustrating exercise when the census and vital statistics records only provide Ireland as a place of birth. When you begin your research in Ireland you need to know at least a County of origin but a parish, town or townland would be the best information you could find to start your search. This lecture will help you begin researching your Irish family history in Canada and show you how to use the information contained in the documents to help you go back over the pond to Ireland. We will examine different methods you can use in Canadian records to find a place of origin in Ireland.



“Researching Your Ontario Family History“
June 23, 2018 – 10:00 am – 12:00 pm


This lecture will help you begin the search for your family history in Ontario. We will be examining the basic records and methods needed to help you find information. How to evaluate the information you find and where to look next will also be discussed. We will look at information to be found online as well as in libraries and archives. We will also focus on some records for Halton County and Peel County.
