November 2016 Meeting

Sleigh-riding in High Park

High Park, Toronto – January 1925
Toronto Reference Library Baldwin Collection, X 65-114

Our last Toronto Branch meeting of 2016 will take place on Monday 28 November starting at 7:30 pm at at Eglinton St George’s United Church at 35 Lytton Blvd in North Toronto (in the Sanctuary).

In keeping with Branch tradition, we’ll be marking the close of the year and the start of the holiday season with a celebration of our own Great Moments in Genealogy. Ten Branch members will take the podium in turn to share one “great moment” on their family history journey.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for an inspiring and entertaining evening that is always a member favourite, with tales from the trenches of family history research—stories of cousins lost and found, travels to ancestral haunts, persistence, Eureka moments and serendipity.

Special refreshments will be served during an extended break time. Remember to drop by our information tables outside the meeting room to find out about the latest Branch courses and volunteer opportunities.

Please note that the Members Network will be gathering before the main meeting (beginning at 6:15) 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.

To find out more about our November speakers and topics, and what’s in store for 2017, please visit our Meetings page or browse through our Calendar.

PLEASE NOTE: This meeting will not be live-streamed.
