May Meeting and AGM

The Annual General Meeting of Toronto Branch will take place on Monday 25 May starting at 7:30 pm at the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto (convenient access from the North York subway station), and will be immediately followed by our regular monthly Branch meeting.

Tombstones at St James CemeteryAs family historians, we are accustomed to seeking out and recording the dates when our ancestors died. But deaths produce many types of records—death registrations, obituaries, burials, cemetery records, tombstone inscriptions and more—each containing different information. And, as Branch member Susanna de Groot will tell us in our featured presentation at the May meeting, titled Dead and Buried, we can gain a much more complete and accurate picture of our ancestors’ lives if we make the effort to collect all death records available.

Both the AGM and the regular meeting will be live-streamed for those who are unable to attend in person. For instructions on how to connect to our live feed, visit our Live Meeting Stream page. We hope you’ll be able to join us – either in person or on-line. To find out what’s in store for future Branch meetings, please visit our Meetings page or browse through our Calendar.
