April 2017 Meeting

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday 24 April starting at 7:30 pm at Eglinton St George’s United Church at 35 Lytton Blvd in North Toronto (in the Sanctuary), and will feature a presentation titled Ontario’s Second Wave of 19th Century Settlers: One Family’s Story.

Speaker David Corkill will introduce us to an immigrant family struggling to live off the land in Upper Canada, and tell us how their ingenuity and hard work allowed them to survive and prosper and eventually escape the toil of the farm… with a little help from the Canadian Shield.

After our mid-meeting break, don’t miss our second Brick Wall Buster session with expert researcher Janice Nickerson!

The Members Network will be gathering in advance of the main meeting from 6:15 on in the Eglinton Room. All Branch members are welcome to participate and share experiences with others pursuing their family history research! And, if you have an ancestor who worked for the Post Office, collected stamps, appeared on a stamp, designed postage stamps or caches, was a Canadian stamp dealer, lived in a small town, or sent or received mail, be sure to stop by our Discovery Table. Kathy Hartley, a philatelic research librarian, will be on hand from 6:30 to 7:25 and during the break to answer your questions about stamps and the stories they can tell.

Eglinton St George’s is located a block west of Yonge Street between Eglinton and Lawrence Avenues—a short bus-ride or a reasonable walking distance from either the Eglinton or Lawrence subway station. If you’re driving, there is some local street parking and there are also three “Green P” parking lots close by.
