Update: The speaker for the February 13th meeting of the Leeds & Grenville Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society has had to cancel her appearance due to family illness. Instead, the meeting will feature a Show and Tell of genealogy stories. If you would like to tell us one of your stories, please come prepared to speak for about five minutes. If you have photos or books to illustrate your story, please bring them along. Refreshments will follow the presentations.
The Leeds & Grenville Branch, OGS will meet on Monday February 13th in the Brockville Museum beginning at 7:30 p.m. Guest speaker will be Shirley Jones-Wellman, co-author of the book North Elmsley Township Doorway to the Past. Shirley, a retired librarian, is one of four volunteers with a love of history who banded together to research and write a history of early Elmsley Township north of the Rideau. She will speak about the hardy settlers and their families who took up land and made it their home. Refreshments will follow, with a chance to speak with local genealogists about your research.
