The Simcoe County Branch, Ontario Ancestors (formerly 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.
We have 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, visit their website.
As well, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) in Barrie generously provides monthly meeting space. Most of our meetings take place in one of the church’s meeting rooms, unless otherwise noted. The Church and Family History Center are located at 79 Ferris Lane (see location map).
