Gatherings and Events

The Dalton Genealogical Society holds Annual General Meetings (AGM) and Member Gatherings at locations around the globe. The Society selects venues that have significance to the Dalton, D'Alton and Daulton surnames, or represent unique research opportunities. At these Gatherings, we encourage members and independent experts to give presentations that are relevant to the Society membership. We urge all our members to attend these Gatherings as they are a primary method of interaction and yield genealogical and historical information as well as forging international camaraderie.
