Trace your family tree with expert help during KFPL’s Genealogy Drop-In sessions

Good news for amateur genealogists — the Kingston Frontenac Public Library’s Genealogy Drop-In
program is back! There are six weekly opportunities to work on your family tree with expert help
between Oct. 4 and Nov. 15.

Drop in between 1 and 3 p.m. on any or all of the six dates, with no registration required. Anne Hall,
KFPL Local History Librarian, and members of the Kingston Branch of Ontario Ancestors (formerly the
Ontario Genealogical Society) will be on hand to answer questions and offer assistance.
“Bring your laptop or tablet and learn about your ancestors, explore research sources and share
strategies with others,” Hall offered.
While this is a drop-in program, those working on a particular aspect of genealogy, such as military
service, passenger lists, or cemetery records, can email Hall in advance as she may be able to connect
researchers with specialized help.
Genealogy Drop-in sessions alternate between the Central Branch and the Isabel Turner Branch on the
following dates (note there will be no session during the week of Oct. 17 – 21):
• Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Central Branch, 2nd Floor, Local History Room
• Thursday, Oct. 13 at Isabel Turner Branch, Cataraqui Room
• Thursday, Oct. 27 at Isabel Turner Branch, Gates Room
• Tuesday, Nov. 1 at Central Branch, 2nd Floor, Local History Room
• Thursday, Nov. 10 at Isabel Turner Branch, Cataraqui Room
• Tuesday, Nov. 15 at Central Branch, 2nd Floor, Local History Room
