Dec 1, 2022 – Jessica Algie of City of TO Archives “Researching the History of Your House”

Is there something unique about your home or neighbourhood that you’ve always been curious about? How old is my home?  Who lived there in the past?  

Jessica Algie, from the City of Toronto Archives, will show you, step by step, how to research a Toronto property using archival collections including fire insurance maps, city directories, historic photographs and tax assessment rolls.  

Join Jessica on a journey to uncover the story of one interesting home in the West Toronto Junction neighbour hood. Then, apply those research techniques to your own home!  Question and chat to follow.If you have a specific question about some property in the Junction that you would like Jessica to research before the December 1 meeting please send it to junctionhistorical@gmail.com.   

Stay tuned! Future topics and presenters will be confirmed soon.
