Genealogy ‘Summer Camp’ -  Toronto, 16-21 June 2013

The 17th annual camp, organized by the

Toronto Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society

Genealogy ‘Summer Camp’ in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, brings out-of-town family historians to Toronto for an intensive week of tutorials and hands-on research, with the guidance of local experts, at the many archives and reference libraries in Toronto. Campers take full advantage of Toronto’s great public transit system, and the group is small to allow lots of help from our local experts.

Those from out-of-town are encouraged to stay with the group – there is economical university residence accommodation.

The 2013 Genealogy ‘Summer Camp’ will be number 17! More than 135 participants from England, right across Canada and many US states have attended the 16 previous Summer Camps—some more than once! And there have been many local participants as ‘day campers’. It is an excellent way to get acquainted (or reacquainted) with the libraries and archives in Toronto. It is also a great excuse for a week of concentrated research.

This year’s Summer Camp is scheduled for June 16 to 21, 2013. The Summer Camp fee for 2013 is $240 (Canadian), which covers approximately 7 hours of lectures and tutorials, 25 hours of hands-on instruction and all worksheets and handouts.

For details as to venues, resources, tutorials and accommodation, and to download an application package, visit www.torontofamilyhistory.org/summercamp.html or contact Jane MacNamara at info@torontofamilyhistory.org  Applications should be received by 16 May 2013.
