An organization of family historians, some with Toronto roots, others who live in Toronto, we have ancestors around the world.

June 2023 meeting

Our June Toronto Branch meeting will took place on Monday June 26

York University Professor Romana M. Bahry spoke on The Ancestry of Dr. W.S. Kindraczuk (1882-1969): Research in Ukrainian, Polish, German, and Austrian records. Dr. Bahry introduced us to her maternal grandfather, a pioneering chemist, and told us about the genealogical resources she drew on both in Toronto and in several Eastern European countries to write his biography. 

We began the evening with a short presentation by Bonnie Bell titled Resettling and Rethinking: A Settlement Document that Revised a Family Story. Just when you think you know all about an ancestor, something new and surprising might come along!

This was a hybrid meeting at Lansing United Church at 49 Bogert Avenue in north Toronto, near the Sheppard subway station. It was recorded and is now available to view until about September 27. Click here to go to the Recordings page.

This was our last regular monthly meeting until the fall, but Toronto Branch activities will continue over the summer break. Don’t miss the 12th Toronto History Lecture on August 8 (free to attend, but do register in advance), and watch our Calendar for information about other events coming up in the months ahead.
