June 2019 meeting

Our last Toronto Branch meeting before the summer break will take place on Monday, June 24 starting at 7:30 p.m. at Lansing United Church in North York.

Headshot of Stephen S Young

Stephen Young has been an employee of FamilySearch for more than three decades. He also has a strong Ontario connection. His ancestors immigrated to the Toronto area from England in the 1830s and were early pioneers in Perth and Huron Counties. At our June meeting, Stephen will share insights from his long career in genealogy as well as his own family history research. Please join us for The Pros and Cons of Participating in a Global Family Tree. After our mid-meeting break, Michael Nettleton will close out the evening with a short presentation titled What I Learned By Following the Monk from Buffalo.

The Members Network will be gathering as usual in advance of the main meeting, beginning at 6:15 p.m.—all Branch members are welcome, regardless of level of knowledge or area of interest.

Lansing United Church 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.

Toronto Branch meetings are free to attend and open to all. Visit our Meetings page to find out more.

Remember… there are no Branch meetings in July and August… but they’ll resume in September with more great opportunities to learn and share!
