OPL Event: Early Canadiana Online

Early Canadiana Online is a virtual library of full-text historical content about Canada, including books, magazines, family and local histories, voters’ lists, Parliamentary papers, and other official publications from the 16th to the early 20th century. It's available free to all Ottawa Public Library cardholders at home via the web as well as at OPL branches.

Daniel Velarde, Canadiana.org Communications Officer, is coming to the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library showing how to use and get the most from this multi-faceted resource. The 90 minute session on Wednesday 24 May, 2017 starts at 6:30pm.

Daniel is also speaking at the OGS Conference on Sunday 18 June in the early afternoon but you may have difficulty choosing, the other presentations in that timeslot are: Irene Robillard on The WI Tweedsmuir Community Histories: A Social History of Rural Ontario Ontario; Sharon Callaghan on Quebec Notary Records—Primary Resource for Ancestors’ Documents and; D. Joshua Taylor on US/Canadian Immigration Pathways, 1800s–1900s.
