Quinte OGS Branch October Meeting

If you're near Trenton on Saturday why not head for Quinte West City Hall Library where OGS Quinte Branch has an interesting sounding presentation: Collision with an Idyllic World!! The Impact of the 1918 Flu Pandemic on Prince Edward County,

Using old photos, newspaper clippings, school registers, civil records and accounts of descendants, this presentation describes the process of researching the 1918 flu pandemic in Prince Edward County. Starting with the death registers for each municipality, the presenter gathered information about each victim. While the circumstances are specific, the methods are applicable to genealogists everywhere.
The speaker is Phil Ainsworth, genealogist, historian and retired educator.
