The educational component of the Society and its individual branches/Special Interest Groups (SIGs) not only stems from a sense of community, it expands on it. Throughout the year, both online and across the province, there are exciting opportunities for people of all levels of expertise to explore.

  • Branches and SIGs hold regular meetings that highlight the local history in their communities.
  • An annual Conference featuring speakers and workshops, a Family History show with vendors, and opportunities for networking.
  • Monthly webinars on a variety of topics, and for members, a library of over three years of webinars to watch.
  • A quarterly journal – Families – which has been in publication since the 1960s. This member advantage includes a full index of all back issues for researchers to explore.
  • FREE lesson plans, created with support from the Archives of Ontario, aim to increase awareness and interest of genealogy and family history through student-driven learning with historical thinking concepts.
  • The Society also has a variety of databases and catalogues which can be accessed by researchers to assist with family research.
