March 2017 Meeting

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday 27 March starting at 7:30 pm at Eglinton St George’s United Church at 35 Lytton Blvd in North Toronto (in the Sanctuary), and will feature a presentation titled What Lies Beneath.

Speaker Sherilyn L. Bell will take us through an intriguing genealogical case study involving a suspicious series of events in Toronto and Coboconk in the early 1900s, some unusual research techniques and the occasional ethical dilemma. Cemetery stones

After our mid-meeting break, we’ll launch our new Brick Wall Buster series with expert researcher James F.S. Thomson. You won’t want to miss it!

If you can, do plan to come early. Linda Reid, the Facilitator of our Genetic Genealogy Special Interest Group and some fellow members will be at our Demonstration Table before the main meeting, from 6:30 to 7:20, to answer your questions about DNA testing. And, as usual, the Members Network will be gathering from 6:15 on in the Eglinton Room.  All Branch members are welcome to participate and share experiences with others pursuing their family history research!

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.
