The Brant Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society will meet on Sunday, Feb. 22 from 2 p. m. to 4 p. m. at the library/office building in Smokey Hollow Estates, 118 Powerline Rd. Brantford. Their Black History month speaker will be Brantford resident Marcus Snowden talking about early Black History in the Brantford area.

The meeting will also be a great opportunity, if you haven’t already had the opportunity, to check out the great facilities that the Brant OGS have set up at Smokey Hollow. The library is a great resource and the new building provides an accessible and clean, well organized place to do research. They also have a great variety of publications available for purchase.
