Resource centre open

The South Okanagan Genealogical Society wishes to let our members and the general public know that after our Christmas break, the Resource Library Centre is now open.

Our Resource Library Centre is open every Tuesday, except July, August and December, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Penticton Museum and Archive, 785 Main St., Penticton. We are housed in the archives room to your left as you come in from the south parking lot.

We welcome members and anyone who would like to start researching their family’s history. If you have questions on any part of researching, there are several very experienced researchers on hand who are willing to share their knowledge.

Our mini workshops are very popular with our members, they commence on Jan. 22, and follow every two weeks thereafter. These workshops cover everything from beginning genealogy to brick walls, last wills and testaments to newspaper archives, what can be gleaned from obituaries to restoring old photographs, how to use Family Tree Maker, navigating the Internet, preserving documents and photographs to organizing your genealogy.

The membership is $27 per year for a single, $36 for a couple and $15 a year for a student. As a member of the South Okanagan Genealogical Society, these mini workshops are available to you at no cost as part of your membership. All non-members pay a fee of $5 for each workshop.

For more information contact myself at sogsnola@shaw.ca.
