Temporary Remote Access to the Ancestry Library from Home will be extended until December 31, 2021.
In order to better serve our patrons, we have worked with ProQuest and its partner Ancestry Library to expand offsite remote access to the Ancestry Library database directly from your home. Previously Ancestry Library was only available for in-library use.
You can access billions of names in thousands of genealogical databases including Census and Vital Records; birth, marriage, and death notices; the Social Security Death Index; and more.
Canadian coverage includes major sources such as the censuses from 1851 to 1916, the Ontario civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths, and the Quebec Drouin Collection (courthouse copies of parish registers).
While you stay home practicing social distancing, we hope these valuable resources will give you something interesting to do, such as looking for your ancestry history and building a family tree, something you might not have had time to do previously.
