April Meeting

Our April Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday 25 April starting at 7:30 pm. If you can, come a little early—there will be family history poster presentations starting at 7:00 pm, courtesy of the Branch Members Network. This will be the first Branch meeting at our new venue—Eglinton St George’s United Church at 35 Lytton Blvd in North Toronto.

ESGFor those who haven’t yet had an opportunity to visit, Eglinton St George’s is located a block west of Yonge Street between Eglinton and Lawrence Avenues. It is a short bus-ride or a reasonable walking distance from either the Eglinton or Lawrence subway station. If you are driving, there is some local street parking and there are three “Green P” parking lots close by. We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful new location.

Our featured speaker at the April meeting will be Branch member Susan Reid who will tackle some of the trials and tribulations of family history in her talk, (Mis)Adventures in Genealogy–Labyrinth, Maze or Rabbit-hole? When you come across missing records, conflicting dates, name changes or accounts that just don’t match up with the evidence, what’s a genealogist to do?

During our mid-meeting break, you’ll have an opportunity to mingle with other members and guests, and drop by our information tables to find out about Branch activities and volunteer openings. We’ll close out the evening with a short presentation by Branch Chair Richard Yeardye titled From rags to riches—a Home Child success story.

Please note that this meeting will not be live-streamed. We hope many of you will be able to join us in person. We expect to resume live-streaming our monthly meetings as of May.
