About this webinar

The Archives of Ontario (AO) is the foremost repository for Ontario records. It houses all non-active provincial-level government records, many municipal-level government records, and reams of corporate, organizational and private papers. If you haven’t spent many hours at the AO, you haven’t thoroughly researched your Ontario ancestor. This class will introduce you to the AO’s MVRs (most valuable records), and show you how to use the website of the AO to identify relevant records, research historical background and find maps and images for your family history.

    Excellent information about what is available at the Archives of Ontario, as well as a peak at the new website. Loved that Janice took us on a photographic tour of the facility – I now know what to expect and feel comfortable about visiting in person!
