Huron Branch Goals

Our Branch goals are to:

  • promote, encourage and foster the study of genealogy and original genealogical research in the Branch’s geographical area and the Huron Tract;
  • collect and preserve information, books, manuscripts, charts, maps, photographs, microfilms and related material relevant to genealogical study;
  • encourage and instruct members in the ethical principles, scientific methods and effective techniques of genealogical research;
  • publish and distribute books, bulletins, and other material as may be desirable to further the foregoing objects of the Branch; and
  • raise funds for any of the foregoing objects and to accept donations, gifts, legacies and bequests;
  • support “organizations” external to The Society and within the Branch’s geographical area which have a shared interest in genealogy and family history.

Our 2020 Goals, based on feedback from our membership survey are:

  • Moving our website to the Ontario Ancestors platform
  • Developing a member only section on the website
  • More digitized records available for purchase and/or for members only
  • Celebrating 40 years since our beginning – a special meeting/day July 8th
  • Hosting a meeting with the Huron County Historical Society June 3rd
  • To have our meetings available online to members
  • To have a table at 2020 Ontario Ancestors conference
