Loyalist Genealogy Research:
Come a few days early or stay a few extra days at the end, and do some research at the fabulous genealogical sources in Toronto. Please take the time in advance to check out these facilities for hours, location, types of sources in more detail and make any necessary arrangements with them, such as booking research time. Some have limited space and help. And of course they can help you find what you are looking for a whole lot more easily if you come well prepared.
