Yesterday afternoon (Monday, October 27th, 2008), Don Hinchley, President of the Ontario Genealogy Society (OGS), wrote to tell a number of us that Paul McGrath, the genealogist on "Ancestors in the Attic", has died in Scotland.
He was the chair of the Toronto Branch, and had given many talks around Ontario on genealogy.
He died last Wednesday of a heart attack.
People who attended Conference '09 in London, Ontario this year heard him give a couple of seminars and the talk at the supper on "Ancestors in the Attic".
This blog send its condoldances to his family for thier personal loss, and to the genealogists of Canada, for they have lost a great family historian.
