Meeting Details


On behalf of the Wellington County Branch Council, we wish to inform you that meetings scheduled
for April and May and, the June 27, 2020 bus trip to the Ontario Archives, are cancelled. This
includes any online presentations.

During these very difficult times of COVID-19 the Wellington County Branch Council is focusing
their attention on the day to day efforts of our members. Ancestry will always be available to us
to explore and enjoy in the future.

We send thoughts of well-being to all of you and look forward to preparing an outstanding meeting
program in the future when we can all come together once again. The following is a quote from
Thich Nhat Hanh that council member, Beverly Hunter posted on the Branch’s Facebook Page:

If you look deep into the palm of your hand,
you will see your parents and all generations
of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this
moment. Each is present to your body. You
are the continuation of each of these people.

We will continue to post on our dynamic Facebook page: Wellington County Branch, Ontario Ancestors.
All members are invited to post pictures, tips, ask questions or respond to inquiries.
Please remember that all posts are to be respectful and related to family history research.
