through a computer darkly

Toronto. Another past-time of mine is family genealogy. For over forty years now I have traced ancestors diligently. The other day the society received an email from the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) announcing its free online series for this month will focus on Black History in Ontario. Three separate dates and sessions are noted (free but with mandatory registration).

Please join in, especially if you have ancestors with black roots. Dr Julie Crooks was our guest speaker at the February 2018 Toronto meeting. Although the Wikipedia page above says she was born in London, England; she mentioned to me that she is from Ghana in Africa and was educated in England before emigrating here.

Once again, it is photography that lets us see how our ancestors looked and lived. Food for thought!

Note. This post title is a riff on the biblical phrase “Through a glass, darkly” from 1 Corinthians 13:12.
