Genealogy Drop-In

Genealogy Drop-In returns! Six weekly opportunities to work on your family tree with expert help in April and May. No registration is needed.

Drop into the Cataraqui Room in the Isabel Turner Branch between 2 and 4 p.m. on any or all of the six dates below to work on your family tree, explore research sources and share strategies with others. Our local history librarian and members of the Kingston Branch of Ontario Ancestors (formerly the Ontario Genealogical Society) will be on hand to answer questions and offer assistance. 

Bring your laptop or tablet to connect to the branch's Wi-Fi for Ancestry Library Edition, Digital Kingston and FamilySearch.

No registration is necessary, but if you're working on a particular aspect – Indigenous connections, military service, passenger lists, land grants, cemetery records, UEL, etc. – please email jmiller@kfpl.ca with the details as far ahead as possible so that we can try to connect you with specialized help.
