Presentation Topic: Great Moments in Genealogy
by Quinte Branch

  
One of the major advantages of attending genealogy or family history get-togethers or events is the opportunity to network, share and learn about the successes, trials and tribulations of research. At Quinte Branch, we have lots of those experiences to share, and Saturday, June 18th is the day to do it.
  
This is your chance to tell the story of your ancestors. We are encouraging our members and guests to share their research successes, brick wall breakthroughs, serendipity moments or any other significant event in the pursuit of our collective past. You might want to talk about your research in general, or the most interesting or famous/infamous ancestor in your tree.
  
Maybe you have an old photo or other artifact you’d like to bring and brag about. Sadly, we are all a little reluctant to tell our stories, thinking other’s will be more interesting, but we have all had unique discoveries and this is a great opportunity to share them with your friends and colleagues. This promises to be a fun afternoon.
  
As a bonus, Quinte Branch will announce an important update to our online Finding Aid Database. More clues for research!
  
See you on June 18th! Bring your stories with you.

Presentation Topic: History of Wallbridge
by Alex McNaught

  
Alex McNaught, one of several notable historians/genealogists/curious fellows in the Bay of Quinte area, has spent 12 years researching and writing what has become a labour of love, a book entitled A Place Called Wallbridge.
  
Alex is a member of Quinte Branch OGS and we are rightly proud of his accomplishments and happy to feature Alex as our guest speaker. He is equally proud of his achievement and his book A Place Called Wallbridge will be the topic of our presentation and discussion at our September 17th meeting at the Quinte West Public Library.
   
His talk on the history of Wallbridge with slides will celebrate some of the finer and perhaps not so fine moments in his research, the historical significance of Wallbridge and insights as to some of the citizens and families of Wallbridge and surroundings and their many endeavors.
  
Copies of Alex’s book will be available for purchase.
