Lifelong learning

For a general adult audience, we provide classes and workshops to help you improve your research skills. Many of these are free.

As well, we hold a range of annual and one-off conferences and seminars featuring international and local experts. These cover family history, education and other topical subjects.

We host many other events, such as talks, lectures and tours, which may be of interest. See our What's on calendar for full details or our audio and video section to hear past talks.

We also produce a range of learning resources, including conservation guides, research guides and family history resources.
