October 2020 meeting – online

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday, October 26, beginning at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time).  It will be entirely online and open to all—but you must register in advance. 

Tracing the history of ancestors who went into service in World War I with an arm of the British forces can be challenging but, as historian David Fuller will explain, also very rewarding. In his talk, Researching Imperial Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the First World War, David will outline the different paths Canadians could take in an Imperial military career and show us how to trace them in archival records.

We invite you to stay with us after the presentation… and have your say. We’ll be setting up virtual “break-out rooms” so that you can talk with your fellow attendees in small groups. Bring a cup of tea or the beverage of your choice and let’s chat!

Find out more and register for “Researching Imperial Soldiers…” on October 26.

After registering, you’ll get an email message with a link to join the webinar. This link will be unique to your registration. 

Watch our Calendar for information about events coming up in the months ahead.
