The Simcoe County Branch, Ontario Ancestors (also known as the Ontario Genealogical Society) consists of members from throughout Simcoe County and across the world. While the Branch does not have an office, there is a close cooperation with Barrie Public Library and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The Branch has formed a partnership with Barrie Public Library. Through this relationship, we have been able to make our extensive collection of holdings more accessible to the public. We have also been able to make use of expensive research tools such as microfilm reader/printers that might not normally be available to us. Through the Microfilm Project our Branch is able to expand the library’s collection of Vital Statistics microfilms for Simcoe County. The library is located in downtown Barrie at 60 Worsley St. (see location map). For more information on the library’s hours and contact information.
The Family History Center is located in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 79 Ferris Lane (see location map) in Barrie is manned by a wonderfully knowledgeable and helpful group of volunteers. Check their website for contact information and hours.
