Family History Group

Is this you!

Have just retired and want to learn a new fascinating hobby? Or are you someone who always wanted to do your family tree and have never known how to go about it? On the third Thursday of the month the Brant Branch of OGS has a group that meets from 10 am to noon. This group discusses family research, helps people who are just getting started in family search. It is a great group of people who look forward to telling about their research or helping others. We meet in the Genealogy Resource Centre at Smokey Hollow Retirement Estate.

So Remember

Everyone is welcome and bring a friend. They will try to help with your family research and any brick walls.
