Join us at a BCGS General Meeting

BCGS General Meetings are the second Wednesday of each month. We now meet at the Danish Lutheran Church, Downstairs Hall, 6010 Kincaid St., Burnaby, BC.

Our Hospitality Committee will welcome you – anyone interested in genealogy and family history is welcome to attend.

Usually there is a short business meeting, followed by refreshments, and then either there will be a speaker, or two or three of the special interest groups (SIGs) will meet.

Meeting details, including information on the Special Interest Group sessions, are listed on the BCGS Calendar ahead of time. If you’d like to be in touch with a Special Interest Group facilitator before the meeting, see the BCGS SIG facilitators’ contact information here on the BCGS Education page.

Our BCGS Boutique and Publications Committee members are often at meetings with tables of books, BCGS publications and genealogical tools – and fun items too.

You’ll be free to see more about our past projects and talk to members about our current activities.  We hope you will then join us as a BCGS member! See BCGS Membership benefits and application information here.
