Fall is here and it's time to get back together with our EGG friends again. It certainly was a long HOT summer. Maybe we'll have a lovely Fall.

We are looking forward to 'catching up' with everyone and finding out what you learned or where you went this summer. Remember: new computer sites you happened upon could be of interest to the rest of us. If you have a stumbling block, tell us briefly and perhaps someone can help.

We have meeting room #1 downstairs booked for 7 p.m., Thursday October 13, 2016. It's at our usual location which is The Etobicoke Civic Centre, 399 The West Mall.

We look forward to seeing everyone and sharing stories and information.

See you soon.

Janet Brown.

Please see our Announcements section for information regarding courses offered later in 2016 by the Toronto Branch of the OGS.

We've updated the links section of our website (following our February 11, 2016 meeting). The most recent link was added on February 18, 2016.

Our blog now has an entry that was published on Tuesday, April 12, 2016. The entry pertains to an event that will be held on June 3, 2016.

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 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.
