Ontario Ancestors’ Toronto Branch’s to host free four-part series about Indo-Caribbeans, Ontario enslaved families, Chinese-Canadians, and Armenian-Canadians

The future of genealogical societies in North America is diversity in its research and programs, and the Toronto Branch of Ontario Ancestors has made a move in this direction with its upcoming four-part series of virtual presentations, called Many Stories of Toronto.

The series is about the struggles and victories of people from around the world who came to call Toronto their home.

Four expert speakers will each talk about their research.

April 21: Proudly Indo-Caribbean: A Transnational Journey Through Indentured Servitude by Bhonita Singh.
April 22: Bonded for Life: Tracing the Genealogies of the Enslaved families in Early Ontario by Natasha Henry.
April 28: Discovering My Roots: A Chinese Canadian Perspective by Arlene Chan.
April 29: Reconstructing a Homeland: Armenian Immigration and Settlement in Toronto by Cassandra Tavukciyan.

Each session will begin at 7:00 p.m Eastern time and will consist of an hour-long presentation and opportunity to ask questions.

The lectures are free and anyone may register. Attend the whole series or pick the sessions that suit you.

Read more about each presentation and register on the branch’s calendar page. (Select Many Stories of Toronto.)
