Meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month (except January) in the Society's meeting room in the historic Mechanics' Institute at 68 Elder Street Lambton.
From September to May meetings commence at 7.30 pm in the evening. Winter meetings in June, July and August are held during the day commencing at 2.00 pm in the afternoon.
The library is open on a Tuesday before the meeting for research.
Meeting nights 6pm to 7.25pm (summer)
Meeting days 12.30pm to 1.55pm (winter)
Monthly meetings commence with a guest speaker followed by a short break when tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. The meeting then resumes with a very brief overview by the president outlining up-to-the minute news concerning the Society. This is followed by a Q & A session and some items of genealogical interest such as useful web sites or 'How To' information.
All reports are available for perusal in hard copy at the Society and in the Members Area of this website. President's reports are available for everyone to read below.
Visitors are always welcome to attend any meeting. Disabled access to the meeting room is in De Vitre Street through the gate beside the Meals on Wheels building. This gate is unlocked when our rooms are open so it is not necessary to contact the Society to arrange access.
The very popular feature of our monthly meetings are our visiting speakers who open the meeting. After the speaker there is a short break before the general meeting which then focuses on family history issues.
We are always looking for new and interesting speakers. If you have a story to share or know of a speaker who would be able to visit our rooms to share their story or their research, please complete the contact form at the bottom of this page outlining a possible presentation.
