Family Ties: Ontario Turns 150
This presentation will focus on stories of four family groups in Ontario at the time of Confederation, and how their lives intersected with larger historical forces of the era. Based on the Archives of Ontario’s exhibit, Family Ties: Ontario Turns 150, this presentation will also touch on themes of early photography in Ontario, communication, social change, and the value of genealogy in studying the past.
Share Your WWI Story
The Canada’s History website – Canada’s Great War Album is asking for you to Submit Your Story by sending them scanned WWI photos, letters, or mementos from your family’s collection and they will include them on this website. From the front lines to the homefront — help ensure these great Canadians are never forgotten.
Have a look at stories that have already been submitted. Read about fascinating stories such as Hidden Messages and Code Words used in letters home and how members of a family served overseas and others had to stay behind to support war efforts on the homefront.
