Researching your own family tree is rewarding – and fun! No matter where in the world your family is from, we can help. Our members have been researching, preserving and publishing their own family histories and that of British Columbia’s families since 1971. In 2011, our Society celebrated its 40th anniversary.
The British Columbia Genealogical Society (BCGS) has been on the World Wide Web since 1996. There’ll always be something new for you here.
And here is the link to the BCGS mobile site, although if you have a smartphone or other mobile device, you likely can use this website as is ‘on the go’.
We welcome new members and visitors and invite you to see what we offer free on-line and at our BCGS Walter Draycott Library in Surrey, BC and at our monthly meetings, the second Wednesday of every month at 7:30 pm in the Downstairs Hall at the Danish Lutheran Church, 6010 Kincaid St., Burnaby, BC. (Please note that we are no longer meeting at the Edmonds Community Centre.)
Visit our Research, Walter Draycott Library and Membership sections to see the free resources are available to you here which include advice for beginners, free family tree charts, worldwide research links and guides for BC research too.
