Meetings take place at the Seniors Centre, 56 Francis Street, Kingston
Meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month, beginning at 10:00 a.m. Members and visitors are welcome to come between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m. to work on their genealogy or brainstorm with other members about brick-wall ancestors or other research questions. Coffee and tea are available for a small donation. The meetings end by noon, after which a number of those in attendance go for lunch together in order to continue genealogical discussions.
Everyone is welcome to attend our branch meetings and to join us for lunch afterward.
Check on speakers and their topics from past meetings.
For our usual lunch after the meeting, we're gathering at a different restaurant: The Greek Islands at 331 Bath Road. It's on the north side of Bath Road between Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd and Portsmouth Avenue. The easiest way to get there from the Seniors Centre is to exit Francis Street to Mowat Avenue, turn left (north) up Mowat to Johnson Street, turn RIGHT on Johnson and go to Sir John A. Macdonald; turn LEFT up Sir John (northbound) to Bath Road; turn LEFT onto Bath Road. The Greek Islands restaurant will be on your right, two-thirds of the way to Portsmouth Avenue.
