March 4 Meeting - 7:30 p.m. Oshawa Libary

Brian Winter, Whitby Archivist, brings out more letters written by Whitby pioneers to their families back home in the old country. These letters reveal much about local history - its hardships, development, customs, and individual personalities. Some are funny, some are sad, but all are very interesting. Brian has authored books and numerous magazine and newspaper articles during his long career in Whitby.

Introductory Genealogy Courses Have Started

The Education Committee at the Durham Region Branch has planned several Introductory courses to be hosted at Durham Region Libraries.

Please note that these are introductory, not beginner's courses, and have been planned with the general public in mind.

***Please pass this information on to friends, family and neighbours who you think might get interested in genealogy, but have no idea where to start!!

Volunteers needed! At this point, the education committee members are asking for volunteers who could commit to being an assistant at some of these and future sessions to help the attendees with filling out ancestral charts, etc. Note: you do not have to be the lecturer, just an assistant!

Thanks, Nancy Trimble (Click to send email to Nancy.)
