January 2019 meeting

The first of nine Toronto Branch meetings in 2019 will take place on Monday January 28 at Lansing United Church in North York beginning at 7:30 p.m.

A hundred years ago, the Spanish Flu took the lives of 50,000 Canadians in just over 18 months, and more than 50 million people worldwide. One in six Canadian households was hit by the Flu. Yet their stories are little known. Please join us for The Spanish Flu, Toronto’s / Canada’s Forgotten Pandemic, and find out from speaker Mike Clare where it began, how it spread and how the city and the country responded.

After our mid-meeting break, we’ll enjoy a short additional talk by Branch member Michael Nettleton titled What I Learned By Following The Monk From Buffalo.

Lansing United Church is located two blocks south-west of Sheppard and Yonge, at Poyntz Avenue and Beecroft Road (enter from Poyntz). It’s a short walk from the Sheppard-Yonge subway station, which also links to frequent bus service. If you are driving, parking on local streets is free after 6:00 p.m., and there are pay parking lots close by. The few spaces in the church parking lot are reserved for members with accessibility needs.

The Members Network will be gathering in advance of the main meeting from 6:15 on. All Branch members are welcome to join in for informal family history conversation.

Toronto Branch meetings are free to attend and open to all. Visit our Meetings page to find out more.children wearing protective face masks
