Toronto Island History Project

Welcome!  Watch your step… site under construction.

Plans are slowly forming to organize a formal web-based archive of Toronto Island History.  Edward (Ted) English, Eric Light, and Eric Zhelka are coordinating this archival effort, gratefully supported by former and current Toronto Islanders who gather on the TorontoIslandConnections Yahoo Group (see Bulletin Boards, on the main torontoisland.org site).  If interested in any way, please fill in our Survey as we gauge involvement to see if the project should move forward.

Kind regards,
