Looking to research your family history?
The Williams Lake Library now has a visiting volunteer to help people learn to use the library’s Ancestry Library Edition research program.
Volunteer Claudia Lewis will be on hand at the library on the first Thursday of every month from 2 to 4 p.m. to help train users on the system.
Participants will learn how to search the ancestry collection of databases with genealogical and historical content.
Preregistration is required.
To make an appointment, come to the library front desk, or call 250-392-3630. Evening appointments can also be arranged.
The Ancestry Library Edition brings the world’s most popular consumer online genealogy resource to the library. It is an unprecedented online collection of individuals from North America, the UK, Europe, Australia, and more.
Answers await everyone—whether professional or hobbyist, expert or novice, genealogist, or historian—inside the more than 7,000 available databases.
Here, you can unlock the story of you with sources like censuses, vital records, immigration records, family histories, military records, court and legal documents, directories, photos, maps, and more.”
