Our Presentations


Beads in a Necklace: Stories from Genealogy Ensemble is available at Chapters in Pointe-Claire under “Local Authors.”  The authors will be conducting a book signing September 22 from noon to 4 pm. Do join us.

It’s going to be a busy autumn season for Genealogy Ensemble. Over and above our monthly meetings to discuss genealogy and share our stories-in-progress, many of us will be giving our presentation on How to Write Your Family Stories at various locations across the Montreal area.

In the spring of 2018, our group gave talks at the Montreal West Library; the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa; the Benny Library in Notre Dame de Grace; the War Memorial Library in Hudson and at the Saint John the Baptiste Church in Pointe-Claire. In July, Janice Hamilton presented at Biddeford, Maine, where she vacations.

Our group also held a book signing at Coles in Dorval that was a terrific success.
