The Introduction to this QuickGuide says:

This Legacy QuickGuide is very useful for beginners and seasoned researchers alike. The Ontario history timeline and the Research Strategy sections are especially helpful. The other subject areas, with links to websites, are oriented towards the online genealogist. I am sure that I will use this QuickGuide to help me find records of my Ontario ancestors.
The laminated version of this QuickGuide is very handy for researchers going to repositories or society meetings - it is light and easy to carry in a briefcase or computer case. I much prefer the PDF version because I can save it to my computer (and laptop, tablet, and smart phone using Dropbox or another cloud service) and have it available in digital format for instantaneous usage by clicking the links provided rather than typing the links into my web browser.
Order you copy of the Ontario Genealogy QuickGuide (PDF only) at the Legacy Family Tree Store.
Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary copy of the PDF version of this Legacy QuickGuide on the condition that I provide a timely review of each QuickGuide provided. Look for more in the near future!
