100th Anniversary - end World War 1



November Meeting:

Mission Genealogy Club will be having it's Christmas Social at

1 pm on Thursday November 15th, 2018 in the usual meeting room at the Lifetime Learning Centre.  Hope to see you all there.  Please note that there is no business meeting planned.


Food - In addition to tea and coffee the executive has volunteered to supply sweet, savoury and healthy finger foods but would appreciate contributions of finger foods from the membership as well.


Gifts - Members are asked to bring a gift/regift/homemade gift of an approximate $5 value to contribute to the gift swap and steal.


Entertainment - This year for the first time the festivities will include an ancestral photo game.   Please bring a photo of one of your ancestors in an envelope to give to Judy Teague (game coordinator).  Judy will put the photos on display.   Each player (club member)  will circulate among the other players (club members)  and may ask up to 5 questions of each other player.  These questions must be phrased in such a way that they can be answered with a yes or no.  Examples of questions that could be asked are:   

Is the ancestor in your photo female?

                                                                                                                      Does the ancestor in your photo have a beard?

                                                                                                                       Is the ancestor in your photo wearing a hat?

                                                                                                                       Is the ancestor in your photo an adult?


Is your photo in colour?

The object of the game is to determine which club member is connected to which ancestor photo.  Since we don't all know each others names you will need to wear a name tag.  If your club name tag is at home please bring it.  If your name tag is in the tin brought to each meeting you can pick it up at the meeting.  Blank name tags will be available for those who do not currently have a tag.  Have fun!!!

MGC does not meet in December.  Please mark your calendar for our next regular meeting in the new year...
