May Meeting

The May 2014 meeting of Toronto Branch will take place on Monday 26 May starting 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).

We’ll begin with the Annual General Meeting of Toronto Branch. The agenda will be brief but important—items will include proposed bylaw amendments, the election of new members of the Branch Executive Committee, and a look ahead to plans for the 2014-2015 year.

Mobile Genealogy_9105 GenealogyFollowing the AGM, we’ll proceed with our regular monthly meeting, which will feature a presentation by Branch member and instructor Carol Nichols on “Mobile Family History“. One of the current trends in technology is the increasing use of mobile devices. The good news for family historians is that there are many ways that we can take advantage of mobile technology—tablets, smart phones, e-readers, cameras and portable scanners—in our genealogy research. We’ll look at available technology and programs as well as ways to make the most of these devices as we gather, organize and share our family history.

Hope to see you there!
