    Finding Your Ancestor: Canadian Military Records and Sources

    1:30 - 3:30 PMGuelph Public Library, 100 Norfolk Street

    Most of us have ancestors who served in the military either during a time of conflict or a time of peace. You may have photographs or medals or heard stories about your ancestor’s experiences. You may have wondered if there is a way to learn more about your ancestor's time in military service. But where do you start? What records and resources are available? What information could be contained in the records? How can they be accessed? Were detailed records really created during a time of crisis?

    Join us in this workshop to examine the records and sources available for finding your Canadian ancestor in military records.  These records often hold valuable information for the family history researcher and can lead to new discoveries as well as providing insight into military service in a specific time period. During this session, records and resources pertaining to the War of 1812, the South African War (1899-1902), the First World War (1914-1918), World War Two (1939-1945), and the Korean conflict will be reviewed.  Discussion will also focus on militia records and sources and Permanent Force records 1871-1914.

     

    There is no fee for this event. Registration is required through the Guelph Public Library's Events page or by contacting the library by phone at 519-824-6220.
