PEIGS Annual General Meeting – Saturday 26 September 2020 – A Success!

The Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society held its Annual General Meeting at Park Royal United Church, 11 Christie Drive, Charlottetown on Saturday 26 September 2020.  

The guest speaker was Jill MacMicken-Wilson, Provincial Archivist from the PEI Public Archives and Records Office.  Jill shared her experience with the monumental task of moving their collections during 2019-2020 in the midst of the corona virus pandemic! Despite the challenges the moves was completed and Jill showed what the new location has to offer, and invited all present to find out for themselves how the new location can better serve the needs of the public. The presentation was well received by the more than 30 people in attendance.

The meeting had been delayed from its former May date in response to public health restrictions due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Masks were worn by all and everyone left behind contact information. Truly an AGM to be remembered!
