April webinar now posted…

Thank you to all who joined us online for our April meeting of Toronto Branch. If you weren’t able to catch it live, you can still watch our two presentations—by Lynn Palermo on Habits of a Highly Organized Genealogist, and Janice Nickerson on Daily Life 100 Years Ago, as told in a mother’s letters to her son.

The video recording of our meeting will be posted on our Webinars page for the next month, along with the supporting handout. If you’re a Branch member, the recording and handouts will also be available to you at any time through our Branch Members-Only Pages. Enjoy!

April 2020 meeting – online

Our next Toronto Branch meeting will be on Monday, April 27, starting at 7:30 pm. As in March, this meeting will be entirely online due to COVID-19 restrictions, and open to all.

If, like so many of us, you are finding it a challenge to keep your family history organized, this talk is for you. Lynn will show us how to control our clutter, keep consistent records and avoid repeating research we’ve already done. Join us for Habits of a Highly Organized Genealogist, and learn how to set up a file system that works for you.

We’ll also enjoy a short presentation by Janice Nickerson, titled Daily Life 100 Years Ago, as told in a mother’s letters to her son.

Register in advance for the webinar here.

After registering, you’ll get an email message with a link to join the webinar on April 27. This link will be unique to your registration. Please sign into the webinar a little early to say hello!
