Season’s Greetings from Toronto Branch!

We’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our supporters a holiday season filled with good cheer… and perhaps a few free moments for family history research. May your ancestors finally manage to track you down in the New Year!

Toronto Branch has exciting plans for 2014 – some brand-new courses along with tried and true favourites, workshops you won’t want to miss, and a lineup of fascinating speakers at our monthly meetings. We’re working on some new projects and member benefits and we look forward to sharing more of our news with you in the months ahead. If you haven’t yet renewed your membership, now’s the time!

And if you’re still trying to come up with New Year’s resolutions… what about resolving to spend a few hours of your time to help preserve precious Toronto records and make them available to family history researchers everywhere? There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer with Toronto Branch year-round – just drop us a line and we’ll match you up with a job that suits your skills, interests and schedule.

Best wishes to you and yours from Toronto Branch!
