February Meeting with Sheila Lambrinos

Sheila Thibaudeau Lambrinos will be presenting an illustrated talk that details her early ancestors' migrant movement at the Society's meeting this Wednesday, February 17 at Cooke's Presbyterian Church on George Street in Markdale, Ontario.

At noon, please join us for a potluck lunch (don't forget to bring your favourite dish to share, plus your dishes and cutlery).

Pierre Thibaudeau, her original ancestor, came from France to Acadia in the 1600s but her Grey County roots developed over 150 years ago. Lambrinos believes that inspiring family awareness is a wonderful way for local residents to explore their own local Canadian history, their background and their roots. Her presentation will also shed light on why many local pioneers initially came to Uxbridge Township and why Grey County has always been a welcoming place for agricultural migrants.

Sheila Thibaudeau Lambrinos moved permanently to Grey County in 1995 to live in a farmhouse near Markdale after she retired from a political career in education in the City of North York. However, she spent summer vacation breaks as a young girl near Markdale. Recently, Sheila has moved from Markdale to Owen Sound.

Sheila has a great love of her family history and its historical context. Grey County is made up of people from many places. Please come hear Sheila Lambrinos family story this Wednesday.
