February 2021 meeting – online

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday, February 22, beginning at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time).  It will be entirely online and open to all—but you must register in advance.

This month, our featured speaker will talk about the dos and don’ts of filing, and demonstrate how the Evernote application can help bring order to your computer files and make it easier to keep track of the documents you come across in your family history research. Linda Yip is a writer, photographer, storyteller and professional genealogist. She is also a former executive legal assistant who’s seen and used many different filing methods over the years. In Using Evernote for Genealogy, Linda will tell us why she feels Evernote has made her a better genealogist

After Linda’s talk, we’ll enjoy a short presentation by Melanie Parker on Toronto and the T.O.N.I. Project—discover what this free Ontario name index is all about and how Toronto Branch is helping it grow.
