Explore your family tree this spring with KFPL’s Genealogy drop-in program
The search for one’s roots is a journey that can be both rewarding and challenging — and the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is here to help. Their Genealogy Drop-In program is back, with six weekly sessions this spring.
According to a release from the library, anyone can stop in and get expert assistance from Anne Hall, Local History Librarian, and members of the Kingston Branch of Ontario Ancestors (formerly the Ontario Genealogical Society). This program offers six weekly opportunities for amateur genealogists to work on their family trees. The library said that there’s no need to register in advance — drop in between 1 and 3 p.m. on any or all of the dates below.
“With the Genealogy Drop-In program, you can gain a greater appreciation of your family’s legacy and its impact on your life,” said Hall. “Whether you’re just starting or you’ve been researching for years, we can help you uncover new insights and research strategies.”
The library encourages participants to bring their laptops or tablets and take advantage of available research sources. Although this is a drop-in program, those working on a particular aspect of genealogy can email Hall in advance to see if specialized help is available.
Genealogy Drop-in sessions alternate between the Central Branch and the Isabel Turner Branch on the following dates:
- Tuesday, April 18 at Central Branch, 2nd Floor, Local History Room
- Thursday, April 27, at Isabel Turner Branch, Cataraqui Room
- Tuesday, May 2, at Central Branch, 2nd Floor, Local History Room
- Thursday, May 11, at Isabel Turner Branch, Cataraqui Room
- Tuesday, May 16, at Isabel Turner Branch, Cataraqui Room
- Thursday, May 25, at Central Branch, 2nd Floor, Local History Room
