Annual General Meeting 2014

The PEI Genealogical Society held its Annual General Meeting on Saturday May 3, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at Beaconsfield’s Carriage House, located at the corner of Kent and West Streets in Charlottetown. The meeting highlighted our PEI2014 Inc supported project “Genealogy of the PEI Fathers of Confederation” A special panel of genealogists spoke about researching the seven PEI Fathers of Confederation and tracking their family lines forward to modern-day descendants. In 2013 the Society embarked on a project to find the descendants of these seven famous Islanders and invite them to take part in the PEI2014 celebrations. With most of that research complete, the project team shared their experiences. They talked about what process they used, who they discovered, how they overcame challenges, and what surprised them. Questions and discussion followed the presentation.
