Hello everyone. Fall is in the air and the Blue Jays are creating a lot of excitement.

We have the Boardroom booked for Thursday, October 8, 2015 at our usual location, the Etobicoke Civic Centre, 399 The West Mall.

I have a couple of bags of books, magazines and newsletters to recycle. You wouldn't believe the tips I have rediscovered scanning these items. Bring along any you may want to pass along.

We are looking forward to hearing about any discoveries you have made since the Spring. You may also have found some new Internet sites or you may be working on a project you could share with us.

It's a long time since we've been together. Can't wait to see you all and "catch up".

See you October 8th.


We are looking at alternative ways of disseminating information about our meetings as well as items that may be of interest to our members and/or the general public. We have set up and are experimenting with a blog. The blog can be accessed at If you'd like to contribute to the blog, please contact me (Doug) at the email address shown near the bottom of this page.

The Etobicoke Family History Centre has compiled their list of books, holdings, etc. at their Etobicoke location and added them to their website. The site is now available for us to browse through via this link.

Take a look at our Links, guestbook (we've already received word of a number of breakthroughs, thanks to our members responding to the postings), and Publish Your Interests pages while you're here!!
Membership is not formal. It is for all who care about their own family history and want to share and learn with others. Everyone is welcome.
Would you like to receive a meeting notification from us via email? If so, simply address an email message to Put the word "subscribe" (without the quotes) in the body of the message.

Our meetings begin at 7:00 pm and end at 9:00 pm.
We normally meet at the Etobicoke Civic Centre, 399 The West Mall (south of Burnhamthorpe Road on the east side of the West Mall) on the second Thursday of the month. The Civic Centre has ample parking; if you are taking transit, the Civic Centre is accessible via Mississauga Transit (the Rathburn #20 and the Burnhamthorpe #26 buses both travel along Burnhamthorpe Road and cross the West Mall) and TTC (the Burnhamthorpe #50 and West Mall #112 buses)
