Date(s) - Monday, May 8, 2023
7:00 pm - 8:15 pm


Speaker Wendy Cameron will begin an introduction to the Hawke Papers with their 21st century return to Ontario, a wonderful tale of archival good fortune. A highlight is six large volumes of letters chronicling government aid to immigrants in every year from 1835 into 1869. Other treasures include ten volumes of registers (lists) kept at Toronto. They record immigrants as they arrived in the city and left for a next destination in Canada West/Ontario, between 1857 and 1892.

This will be an online ZOOM meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend. Registration is required.
