April Meeting

Our April Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday 27 April starting at 7:30 pm at the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto (convenient access from the North York Centre subway station).

The title of our main presentation at this meeting is Out of the Shadows: Imaging the Women of my Family. Branch member Bonnie Bell will tell us about her project to inspire members of her family to become interested in the history of their female ancestors. Using photographs, personal documents, and family stories and memorabilia, Bonnie set out to capture the essential character of each of the women of her past. In addition to sharing some of these  “snapshots” with us, Bonnie will explore the factors that shape how we present our family histories to our relatives and the larger world.

During our mid-meeting break, take the opportunity to drop by our information tables and find out about our Branch courses, workshops and other activities, or just mingle and chat with fellow family history enthusiasts. After the break, we’ll close out the evening with a short presentation from Elayne Lockhart on How DNA Broke Through my Irish Brick Wall and Took me Back 3 Generations – in England!

Please note that we will not be live-streaming our April meeting.
