The world’s first-ever global conflict erupted 100 years ago. To commemorate the centenary of WWI, the Archives is hosting a series of engaging talks designed to connect Ontario residents with archival records related to the war – documents that tell the stories of ordinary Ontarians at this pivotal moment in the province’s history. Scholars, family historians and history buffs alike will find these talks stimulating, enlightening and a valuable aid for further exploration of the Archives’ extensive resources related to the First World War.
Delivered concurrently with our newest onsite exhibit, Dear Sadie: Love, Lives, and Remembrance from Ontario’s First World War, this speakers series will be held on Thursday evenings from 6.30 p.m. to 7.45 p.m. in the George Spragge Classroom at the Archives of Ontario. Admission is free and a tour will be given of the new exhibit.
