Guest Speaker – Irene Robillard

Will speak to us on the wealth of genealogical and historical information contained in the “Tweedmuirs of the Women’s Institute in Ontario”, her presentation will also explain how to find and access these collections, both in paper and in digitized format.  Irene is a member of the Women’s Institute and currently the Digitizing Coordinator for Ontario.  She is the author of 3 books on local history in the Ottawa Valley.

Thew Women’s Institute was founded by Adeliade Hunter Hoodless in 1897 after her infant son died from drinking tainted milk.  She vowed that no other families would suffer the same fate and dedicated her life toward the education and development of rural women.

As the Federation Women’s Institutes of Ontario (FWIO) approach its 50th anniversary in 1947, the executive decided part of their celebration should include community histories. In association with Lady Tweedsmuir, the widow of Lord Tweedsmuir (Governor-General 1935 – 1940) the Tweedsmuir History Book project was launched
