GANS to hold their Annual General Meeting & Lecture


The Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia will hold its Annual General Meeting & Lecture on Saturday, May 10 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Akins A/V Room, Nova Scotia Archives, University and Robie Strrets, Halifax, Nova Scotia. 

The lecture will be given by Terrence M. Punch, and Terry will be talking about his latest publication, Montbeliard Immigration to Nova Scotia, 1749-1752. Do you have the surnames Bailley, Burgoyne, Boutilier, Dorey, Jodrey, Patriquin, Dauphinee, Jollimore, Langille, or Tattrie somewhere in your family background? 

Come hear about where they, and other Montbeliardais, came from. You may learn some surprising facts; for example, at the time of the immigration to Nova Scotia from 1749 to 1752, Montbeliard was an independent Lutheran state. 

Light refreshments to follow.

Montreal's Department of Archives.

In addition to the Annual General Meeting to be held at 10:30 am to 10:45 am on Saturday November 10th at the Briarwood Presbyterian Church Hall, 70 Beaconsfield Blvd., Beaconsfield, Montreal by the Quebec Family History Society, there will be a special talk entitled Discover 100 Years of Records at the Montreal Archives.

The talk will be presented by Mario Robert, head archivist at the Montreal Archives. Learn about the different types of records that are held in Montreal city hall's vaults and how they can be used in genealogical and historical research.

Mr. Robert's presentation will kick off the 100th anniversary of the Montreal Archives that takes place in 2013. Although Montreal was founded in 1642, its political history as a municipality only began in 1833 when the first municipal election took place. It was not until 1913, however, that city council voted to create Montreal's Department of Archives.

Members and non-members are invited to attend this event FREE and stay afterward for refreshments and conversation.
