Virtual Conference 2023 Ontario Ancestors, The Ontario Genealogical Society

Spatial Genealogy of Early Armenian and Italian Industrial Workers in Brantford

Presented by Christina Han


In this lecture, Christina will introduce the interactive spatial database of early immigrant communities in Brantford which I designed, a project funded by Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The database, built on data gathered from census records and newspapers, is a useful tool for studying the genealogy of early Armenian and Italian industrial workers in Brantford, Ontario. 


This lecture will cover an introduction to the Brantford Deep Mapping Project, various data and resources, the Armenian and Italian communities in Brantford and will make some conclusions about industry as it relates to genealogy.
