Discover your family tree

The Kelowna and District Genealogical Society has teamed up with the downtown Kelowna library branch to offer a free “Ask a Genealogist” Day on Saturday, Feb.26, as part of the Kelowna Heritage Week events.

KDGS volunteers will be on-hand from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the library branch, 1380 Ellis St., to give advice and individual consultations on researching your family history, along with a series of workshops.

Library staff will also be available to answer questions and highlight genealogical resources in the library, such as census and vital events documents on microfilm, and books and online resources that can help with your research. For more information call 250-762-2800, ext. 1416.
