Kawartha Branch began three new projects earlier this year.
We have begun 2 regular monthly columns in the online version of MyKawartha.
1) Families of the Kawarthas (aka Founding Families at the online address) will give brief histories of some of the early settlers in this area. Each of these articles feature an early family from the Kawartha Branch area. These articles are 500 to 1000 words in length with the possibility that the occaisional article may be longer. Do you have a Kawartha-area family you would like to write about? This is something you can do in your own home. We can offer editorial help. Contact us at - firstname.lastname@example.org
2) The Amateur Genealogist which introduces people to the basics of genealogy.
3) The Branch library has many family histories. We are creating a name index for each history and will put the index in TONI (The Ontario Name Index - the three million and growing name index created by OGS). If you would like to help, this is another project you can do in your own home. We send you a digitized copy of the family history, you read it, and you enter each name you find into a spreadsheet.
