June 2017 meeting

Our last Toronto Branch meeting before the summer break will take place on Monday 26 June starting at 7:30 pm at Eglinton St George’s United Church at 35 Lytton Blvd in North Toronto (in the Sanctuary).

Are you really finding it all when you search online? As Marian Press will tell us in our featured presentation, you may be missing out  if you limit yourself to simple word searches. Please join us for Mining Databases for Every Nugget of Information and learn how to make the most of your online research time. Following our mid-meeting break, enjoy an additional short presentation by Linda Reid on Triangulation – Confirming ancestors with DNA. Toronto Branch meetings are free to attend and all are welcome. For details, visit our Meetings page.

View inside Trinity College, DublinAs usual, 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 join in and share their family history experiences and questions in an informal setting. In addition, a sign-up sheet will be available at the Membership Table for those interested in forming a new Special Interest Group with a focus on basic/intermediate genetic genealogy.

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.

Please note that there will be no Toronto Branch meetings in July and August. Watch for announcements of our fall 2017 meetings as well as a special 50th anniversary celebration, coming soon.
