NEWSLETTER OF THE
ELGIN COUNTY BRANCH
ONTARIO GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY
VOLUME XII ISSUE FOUR DEC 1993
HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS!
To me it has been a pleasure and a challenge to be the Chairman for the Elgin County Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society during 1993.
I would like to thank all members for their help during this last year. I could not have done it without their knowledge and support.
I feel this last year has been interesting with many new projects and speakers. A number of new publications are now available.
With all the support of the members of the Branch I am sure we can carry on with whatever challenges there are in the future.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Lloyd G. Smith
