About Us

On June 14th, 1980, the Quinte Branch was chartered as the 18th branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) covering the Bay of Quinte area that includes Hastings and Prince Edward Counties and surrounding areas in Ontario, Canada. The branch celebrated its 35th Anniversary on June 20, 2015. Over 300 members include those who have roots in the Bay of Quinte area and those who live locally with roots elsewhere.

Quinte OGS is a non-profit organization with three major goals:
- to encourage participation in genealogical activities
- to assemble and preserve family histories and research material;
- to assist family history researchers at the branch library and by correspondence.
