Join us in welcoming, Janice Nickerson

Our ancestors did not live in isolation; they belonged to communities. Learning about our ancestors’ communities can help us understand them better, identify new sources of information and provide the evidence you need to be sure you have the right people.


This session will show you how to use the census (personal, agricultural, and statistical) to learn more about your ancestors’ neighbours and community and how that information can help you tell a better story.



At the end of the presentation, there will be a Q&A session.


Janice Nickerson, U.E., is a professional genealogist based in Toronto.


Her expertise includes Upper Canadian history, criminal justice records, turning bare bones genealogies into shareable family stories, and using genealogy gifts and games to create a legacy. In addition to helping her private clients discover the richness of their ancestral heritage, Janice does heir searching for provincial Public Trustees, writes and lectures on a variety of genealogical topics.


Her books, Crime and Punishment in Upper Canada: A Researcher’s Guide (2010), and York’s Sacrifice: Militia Casualties of the War of 1812 (2012) were both published by the joint imprint of the Ontario Genealogical Society and Dundurn Press. Janice is a proud 8th-generation Canadian, with English, German, Irish, Welsh and First Nations ancestry.
