April Meeting

The April 2014 meeting of Toronto Branch will take place on Monday 28 April 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 featured speaker will be Canada’s “Word Lady”, Katherine Barber, on “Where There’s a Will There’s a Word“. A Canadian lexicographer, and former Editor-in-Chief of the Oxford Canadian Dictionary, she will share her expertise on the evolution of some of the words that are of particular significance to family historians – the ones we find in wills.

3 books by Katherine Barber

During our mid-meeting break, there will be a chance to mingle and find out about upcoming Branch courses, workshops and other activities. Patricia Sheehan, one of the volunteers on our Branch research services team, will close out the evening with a short additional presentation on “Who was that Woman with King George VI—and What is she Doing in the Back of my Grandmother’s Photo Album?. Hope you can join us!
