Genealogy Research Library Opens

Under Stage 3 of the provincial “COVID-19 Reopening Plan”, the Quinte West Public Library is now fully open. Some protocols are still in place, such as providing names and phone numbers at the door, disinfecting, wearing masks, socially distancing and room occupancy limits, which for the Genealogy Research Library is 3 people at one time.

Volunteers Needed

  If you like being ‘part’ of a group and you like genealogy, then we may have a position for you!  We offer training and coaching to everyone. Maybe you have the skills for one of our positions but are worried that you don’t know us, don’t be.  Talk to our Chairperson and then decide. 

New Volunteers for a New Beginning

As our world slowly emerges from pandemic lockdown, the Quinte Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society is looking to find a “few good volunteers” to fill open positions on the Branch Council. A lifetime of family research is not a requirement although most Branch Council members have spent many hours researching their own family history.
