Shocking and Sad News

Toronto Branch has been informed that our chair, Paul McGrath, died of a heart attack in Scotland. He was there filming for Ancestors in the Attic.We will advise you when we know what arrangements have been made.

We will observe a moment of silence in Paul's memory at the meeting on Monday evening (October 27) and there will be a proper tribute at our November meeting and in the November/December issue of the Toronto Tree.

Please meet with other branch members in the Burgundy Room on Monday evening.

How very sad. I enjoyed his presentation at the OGS conference back in May. He will be sorely missed.

This is indeed very sad news. I am a member of the Toronto Branch but I have never been able to attend any meetings. This will be shocking news for the members and for those who watch the television program.

My sympathy to his friends and family.
