Digging for Archival Gold

From Archeion Coordinator Amanda Hill:

The Toronto branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society held a one-day conference on May 4th aimed at encouraging genealogists to make use of archives in the Toronto area. A number of archivists and librarians gave presentations, including representatives from the City of Toronto Archives, the Archives of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, the Archives of Ontario, Loretto Abbey Archives, the University of Toronto Libraries and the Canadiana Department of North York Central Library.

For the AAO, I gave a talk aimed at novice users of archives, including an introduction to archival jargon, advice on how to conduct research in an archives and information on AAO resources which can help in locating archives (including Archeion, of course!). In case they might be useful for others giving a similar introductory talk, I've made the slides available on SlideShare under a Creative Commons licence so that they can be reused.

Address: 411 Richmond Street East, Suite 200, Toronto, ON M5A 3S5
