Family history

Have you always wanted to trace your family history and didn’t know how to start? Or, have you made a start, but then hit a roadblock? Use the great genealogical online resources at the libraries, and come to our weekly Family History Centre sessions where we will guide you on your journey.

Please note, Ancestry Library is temporarily available to library members AT HOME while the library is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
