Saturday, May 27, 2023 – Researching Using Ancestry Library Edition and Ancestry Subscription

Did you know that you can access Ancestry Library Edition at any of the Guelph libraries without a subscription and at no cost? 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 on May 27 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm 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.

Please register for this in-person workshop.
