January Meeting

Our first meeting of 2014 will take place on Monday 27 January beginning at 7:30 in the evening. If you haven’t attended a Toronto Branch meeting before (or if it’s been a while), our regular meeting location is the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto, with convenient access from the North York subway station. We meet nine times a year, normally on the fourth Monday of each month, from January through June and September through November. Each meeting features both a full-length presentation and, usually, a shorter mini-presentation, on topics of genealogical interest, with a break in between so that attendees can meet and mingle with other family history enthusiasts, sign up for Branch courses and workshops, and find out about other Branch projects and activities.

Our main presenter at January’s meeting will be lawyer Margaret Rintoul, who will be speaking on “Genealogy Searching Forward: Back to the Future“. Genealogists usually focus on finding ancestors, but in every family there are both ancestors and descendants. Come and find out what happens from a legal perspective when genealogy meets estate law and the question is how to find the current heirs when a person has died – and be sure to stay for our mini-presentation by Branch member Valerie Watt on “10% Non Parental Events: Fact or Fear?” Hope you can join us!
