Did you know that you can access Ancestry Library Edition at any of the Region of Waterloo Libraries without a subscription and with no fees? This gives you access to billions of records such as census data, city directories, cemeteries, wills, immigration information, court records, military information, family histories, and birth, marriage, and death documents. Join us for a hands-on computer demonstration and workshop on getting started with Ancestry. Bring your laptop or tablet and your questions on navigating Ancestry (library edition or the subscription-based edition) and we will help with search tips and shortcuts to assist you in discovering your family roots.
