The Branch maintains an extensive (and expanding) genealogical research library called the Quinte Genealogy Centre located in the Quinte West Public Library which is staffed by a group of experienced genealogy volunteers, subject to availability. They assist visitors on-site and carry out research by correspondence for those at a distance. Researchers can locate names of possible interest to them in the library holdings by searching our online FIND-IT – Names Index Database.
Research Queries Policy
The Quinte Branch is a non-profit organization, and revenue earned from research is used to improve services and expand the collection. When requesting help with your research, you should search the FIND-IT-Names Index Database, compile a list of names you are interested in and submit the list via email. If inquiring by regular email, please include your name, postal address and membership number if applicable.
As of August 2022, the purchase of research time will be handled by the Quinte Branch Marketplace.
A small fee is charged for research by correspondence to cover copying, postal and other costs and are handled in two ways as follows:
1) Member: research requests receive a $10.00 discount for the first request each year. Additional research requests will be charged as Non-member.
2) Non-member: research requests are calculated at $20/hour plus postage paid in advance.
POSTAGE: If your order can be filled by email, there will be no charge for postage.
PHOTOCOPY: If you require a photocopy of the research, then copying and postage will be charged extra at cost plus $5.00.
