Religion: What’s That Got to Do With the Rebellion

We will examine the role of religion in the American Rebellion. Some of the topics we will explore include the religious denominations existing in the British Colonies; a brief history of protestant religion in New England; the role of churches during the Rebellion; and the aftermath of Rebellion on religion in the United States.  

OnLand from a Genealogy Perspective

Quinte Branch has a great lineup of presentations shaping up. In our first presentation, we will look at the Ontario Land Property Records Portal, OnLand, to research where our ancestors lived. We will look at various historical books, find a property in an urban area, and even walk through placing an order for an instrument.
