The Quebec Family History Society holds a series of free public lectures on the second Saturday of the month, from September to December and from March to May. These lectures take place at 10:30 am at Briarwood Presbyterian Church, 70 Beaconsfield Blvd., Beaconsfield.
The subjects will interest family historians as well as those with a general interest in history. The presentations are followed by a question period and an opportunity to talk to the speaker.
One recent speaker was author Anne Renaud talking about the sinking of the Empress of Ireland. Who knew that more passengers died in the sinking of the Empress of Ireland in the St. Lawrence River in 1914 than in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912? Another recent speaker was archivist Mario Robert from the City of Montreal Archives describing the holdings of the city archives and how one can address the multitude of material there.
Members and non-members are invited to attend and stay afterward for conversation and light refreshments.
