We acknowledge with gratitude that we live and work on the unceded ancestral territories
of the Sechelt (shíshálh) and Squamish (Skwxwú7mesh) Nations.
We are experienced genealogists interested in learning and sharing our stories and strategies for exploring our family histories. Our goal is to help members gain the skills and knowledge to conduct genealogical research, no matter what area of the world their research takes them. We meet monthly over Zoom, where we have presentations by guest speakers, brick wall-busting sessions, and share tips for doing genealogical research.
Everyone is welcome, including members who are new to genealogy! We would love to help you get started. Experienced genealogists are also welcome - some of us have been researching our family trees for decades. Yearly membership is $25 per person, and this helps support the costs of Zoom, guest speakers, and affiliate membership in the BC Genealogical Society.

We discovered during COVID-19 that Zoom is an ideal medium for genealogy meetings. By sharing our screens we are able to share what we know, help our members break down their brick walls, and view presentations by guest speakers. Our Zoom meetings are run by our Program Director, who shares the agenda ahead of time and invites members to contribute. You can participate by asking questions or just by watching! We will help you learn how to use Zoom if you are unfamiliar with it. We also have in-person socials a couple for times a year just for fun.
