New Exhibit at the Mennonite Archives of Ontario:
“Growing Family: Design & Desire in Mennonite Genealogy”
Genealogists do not just uncover the past, they take active roles in shaping it. Designing a family tree may seem like a simple act, but this act requires choices and reflects deep desires for connection, identity and legitimacy.
Through paintings, photographs and original documents from the Mennonite Archives of Ontario, Growing Family takes the viewer through the ways in which Ontario Mennonites have used genealogy to remember the past, reconnect with the present, and hope for the future. These designs are at once uniquely personal and reflective of the universal longing for family.
Please see the exhibit website for more information. Guided tours and additional programing available for groups if arranged in advance.
