Update of Quinte Finding Aid

Bob Dawes just wrote me a note to say that the Quinte Branch of the OGS has just issued over 100,000 records to it's online finding aid -


Quinte Branch - OGS announces an update of its online finding aid available at

Originally intended for use within the Quinte Genealogy Centre Research Library located in the Quinte West Public Library, it was added as an online resource in 2007. While the finding aid is primarily used to locate collateral surnames in the large collection of genealogies and other documents it also provides a lot of relevant information if you know where to look. A guide to using the finding aid and library catalog is provided on the above website.

The latest update adds over 100,000 records to the database bringing the total number to 1,120,000. Information on how to use the online Finding Aid to obtain additional information on search results from research volunteers is also available on the website.
