City of Toronto Archives and the Ontario Genealogical Society invite you to The Toronto History Lecture

Date: Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Time: 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Location: City of Toronto Archives, 255 Spadina Road, Toronto

Brief Overview:

Please join us again this year in spreading the word about The Toronto History Lecture. It will be held on October 24 at 7:30 pm at the City of Toronto Archives and is presented jointly by the Archives and the Toronto Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society.

To commemorate the bicentennial of the War of 1812, the City of Toronto Museum Services created a Book of Remembrance for the men of York who fell during the war and all the casualties of the Battle of York. Janice Nickerson’s research on the militia men uncovered so many fascinating stories that she decided to put them together in a book, York’s Sacrifice: Militia Casualties of the War of 1812.

For the bicentennial year’s Toronto History Lecture, Janice will tell a few stories of the men, women and children whose lives were transformed by this pivotal event in the history of Toronto.

Admission is free, but reservation is required.
