  • History LIVES Here: Chasing the Elusive Past

    Based on his career as a journalist and author, Ian Darling will offer advice at the Main Library about researching the past. Ian, who grew up in Guelph and spent much of his career with the K-W Record, is the author of Amazing Airmen: Canadian Flyers in the Second World War. In particular, Ian will describe how Canadians can learn more about what their relatives did in the past.
    He will discuss how to find original sources of information. Ian will mention, for example, how he was able to learn significant facts about the veterans' personal ordeals during the war that the veterans themselves did not know.
