March Meeting

The next Toronto Branch meeting of 2014 will take place on Monday 24 March beginning at 7:30 in the evening at the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto (convenient access from the North York subway station).

Our own Marian Press will be our featured speaker. Although academic institutions may not be the first places family historians think of when planning a research trip, they are in fact leading the way in the digitization of research materials. A pile of old booksAnd, as we’ll find out from Marian, more and more academic digitization projects are proving to be directly relevant to family history! The title of her presentation will be:  “How Academic Institutions are Helping Genealogists: Free Digital Projects That Family Historians Should Know About“.

After our mid-meeting break (a great time to find out about upcoming Branch courses, workshops and other activities), Sue Henderson will treat us to a short additional presentation on “HERstory, not history – My Family’s Famous Females“. Hope you can join us!
