Webinar — McCord Museum’s family history resources

The Québec Genealogical eSociety will host the free webinar, Fascinating Finds: Family History Resources at the McCord Museum, on Wednesday, August 19, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Learn how McCord Museum’s online and in-person resources can help you in your search for genealogical information. Montreal’s McCord Museum has a wealth of objects relating to individuals and families and their daily lives, work, and leisure activities. From photographs, paintings, prints and drawings, to archival holdings, and more, the focus is not only on Montreal and Montrealers, but also includes other regions of Quebec.

This webinar will demonstrate how to search for images and objects, digitized archival documents, and other, little-known resources available through the McCord Museum’s website. It will also introduce the viewer to additional information that can be uncovered during an in-person appointment in the Archives and Documentation Centre. This includes a quick survey of the contents of the internal database and the analog finding aids for the as-yet uncatalogued portions of the Notman Photographic Archives.

Register to watch the live webinar. A recording of the webinar will be available afterward for eSociety members.
