Product Description

Review

...provides the foundation on which genealogical and historical research into English education in Ontario must rest.

(National Genealogical Society Quarterly 2011-08-01)

Ontario professionals in the genealogical and allied historical communities will want to have ready access to this volume. (Anglo-Celtic Connections 2011-02-12)

Many family researchers with Ontario roots discover they have ancestors who were teachers. Those with no teachers in the family may have ancestors who were part of the Ontario education system as students. Today there are numerous varied resources available to find information on teachers, pupils, schools, textbooks, and curricula in historical Ontario.

Education and Ontario Family History outlines the resources available for education from about 1785 to the early twentieth century, not only for genealogists, but also for other historians with an interest in educational records. Many historical resources are currently being digitized, and Ontario and education are no exceptions. These electronic repositories are examined in author Marian Press's book along with traditional paper and archival sources.

She teaches online courses for the National Genealogical Institute, is a frequent speaker at genealogical conferences, and is a regular contributor to Internet Genealogy, Family Chronicle, and Discovering Family History.
