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.


We are planning our 2021 Virtual Gathering/Webinar for October 9th., 2021 commencing at Noon in the Western Americas,
3PM Eastern, 8PM in the UK, and October 10th at 7AM in New Zealand. Australians will have to get up REALLY early (5AM Sydney), or watch the recorded Gathering.
The Webinar link will appear here. It will be recorded and be available for viewing after the event closes.
If you would like to participate as a speaker or have suggestions about the event, please contact Karen Dalton Preston.
