Quinte Research Library


Quinte Branch maintains a large and growing genealogy library for research by members and non-members in the Quinte Genealogy Centre operated by the branch. The library holdings include hundreds of genealogies and family histories in addition to published books, CDs and microfilm for the Quinte area, other parts of Ontario and Canada, the United States, Great Britain & Ireland and Australia and Tasmania. Computerized Finding Aids including the searchable online “FIND-IT” Names Index and in-house CemSearch databases are available to help you to quickly identify your ancestors and family members in the library holdings. New resources are added regularly and donations are most welcome and acknowledged.

The Branch Library is located at:
