March 2021 meeting – online

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday, March 22, beginning at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time).  It will be entirely online and open to all—but you must register in advance.

book coverIn October 1804, a British gunboat disappeared in a storm on Lake Ontario near Presqu’ile Point south of Brighton, and all 20 on board were lost. To this day, the circumstances surrounding this tragic chapter in the history of Upper Canada remain shrouded in mystery. Why did the ship set sail to begin with? Who were the people on board and what were their family connections? Our featured speaker, genealogist and historian Dan Buchanan, will address these questions and more as he tells us the fascinating story of the HMS Speedy: Tragedy and Mystery

Dan’s talk will be based on his recent book The Wreck of HMS Speedy: The Tragedy That Shook Upper Canada, which is available for purchase now through the Branch eShop.

We’ll close out the evening with a short presentation by Linda Reid on Why you should paint your chromosomes. You won’t want to miss it!
