November 2019 meeting

The last Toronto Branch meeting of 2019 will take place on Monday 25 November starting at 7:30 p.m. at Lansing United Church in North York.

Our November meeting is traditionally an occasion to celebrate the breakthroughs and memorable research finds of our members, and it is always an audience favourite! This year, ten Branch members will share their Great Moments in Genealogy in a series of fast-paced presentations. Please join us for what promises to be another intriguing and inspiring evening. Light refreshments will be served during the mid-meeting break.

As usual, the Members Network will be gathering before the main meeting (beginning at 6:15).  All Branch members are welcome to participate and share experiences with others pursuing their family history research!

Lansing United is located two blocks south-west of Sheppard and Yonge, at Poyntz Avenue and Beecroft Road (enter from Poyntz). It’s a short walk from the Sheppard-Yonge subway station, which also links to frequent bus service. If you are driving, parking on local streets is free after 6:00 p.m., and there are pay parking lots close by. The few spaces in the church parking lot are reserved for members with accessibility needs.

To find out more about our November speakers and topics, and what’s in store for 2020, please visit our Meetings page or browse through our Calendar.
