We are excited to offer all of our members, both near and far, the opportunity to attend our May presentation ONLINE.
On Monday, May 11th the Leeds & Grenville Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society will host its first-ever Online Branch Presentation, beginning at 7:00 pm.
Our presenter, Tom Graham, will give us “Tales from the General Store – the Untold History of Bishop’s Mills”. His presentation will share some of the stories captured in his book of the same name, of the development of the community, the families who settled there, and major events which took place in the village.
Tom is a 5th generation descendant of United Empire Loyalists who arrived in Canada in 1818. He describes himself as a community builder, storyteller, and artist. Tom has lived in Bishop’s Mills since 1975, when he and his sister Jane bought the General Store from Norman and Mildred Adams. He and his wife Jeanne have five children all raised in Leeds & Grenville.
