March 2018 meeting

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday, March 26 starting at 7:30 pm at Lansing United Church at Poyntz Avenue and Beecroft Road in North York.

Many of us have stacks of family history notes, photos and documents, and many of us also have plans to — some day — transform our research and stories into book form to share with our relatives. Professional genealogist Janice Nickerson will demonstrate some creative ways to give the gift of genealogy without writing a 500-page tome. Need a little inspiration? Join us for Fun Ideas for Showcasing Your Discoveries! After the break, we’ll close out the meeting with a mini-presentation by Gwyneth Pearce titled Cover to cover: finding family history clues in old books.

As usual, the Members Network will be gathering 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. Stop by to share your experiences or questions, or just chat with some of your fellow members.

Lansing United Church is a short walk from the Sheppard-Yonge subway station. If you are coming by subway, note that the Poyntz exit (the closest to the church) will be inaccessible until mid-April because of fare gate construction, so you will need to exit to Sheppard and walk south. Parking on local streets is free after 6:00 p.m and there are pay parking options nearby. Please leave the few spaces in the church parking lot for members with accessibility needs.

Toronto Branch meetings are free to attend and open to all. To find out what’s in store over the next few months, visit our Meetings page.
