Toronto’s Massey Family:

A Story Told Through Postal History

Speaker: Kathy Hartley
Kathy Hartley spent decades researching her own family history before becoming a reference librarian at a philatelic research foundation in Toronto. Once there her patrons were amazed to discover how readily available genealogical sources could tell them who sent, or received, or delivered the mail that carried a favoured stamp, or was part of their postal history collection.

This presentation brings Kathy back to her research ‘roots’ as she shares with Toronto Branch members how she was able to uncover the story of three generations of a famous Canadian philanthropic family by using old envelopes, post cards and other postal materials.

Join us and learn how find your own relatives through the mail or use postal history to supplement your family’s story.
