January 2020 meeting

The first Toronto Branch meeting of 2020 will take place on Monday 27 January starting at 7:30 p.m. at Lansing United Church in North York.

We’re kicking off the new year with a special panel presentation titled We all have a story to tell! Three of our panelists are Branch members who have published their family stories, all in different ways. Marian Press has created a traditional family history book, Sheelagh Hysenaj publishes genealogy stories in her local newspaper, and Carol Nichols creates unique family history brochures. Our fourth panelist, Diana Varma, is a print professional from Ryerson University, who will give us an overview of how and where to get our stories told. This will be an interactive session so please bring your questions!

As usual, the Members Network will be gathering before the main meeting (beginning at 6:15).  All Branch members are welcome to participate and share experiences with others pursuing their family history research!

Lansing United is located two blocks south-west of Sheppard and Yonge, at Poyntz Avenue and Beecroft Road (enter from Poyntz). It’s a short walk from the Sheppard-Yonge subway station, which also links to frequent bus service. If you are driving, parking on local streets is free after 6:00 p.m., and there are pay parking lots close by. The few spaces in the church parking lot are reserved for members with accessibility needs.
