Our genealogist can provide some assistance when a roadblock is reached. For information about our resource and research library, please visit our library page.

Branch members can get a copy of the Certificate application, instructions and fee, from Linda Nygard, linda_nygard@telus.net.

Please note, you must be a member in good standing of the branch to access this 100% volunteer service. Members also help each other with the research.
