Did Your Ancestors Pass This Way?
Are you looking for ancestors who may have passed through or settled in Prince George, BC, Canada? If so, submit a query to the:
Prince George Genealogical Society, PO Box 1056, Prince George, BC, Canada V2L 4V2
You can contact me at my email address, or you can email our club president Robin Fairservice. You can also send articles, queries, or information. All queries will be answered by one of our volunteer club members. There is a small fee charged to non-members to help pay the cost of photo copying and mailing. Don't forget to ask about our newsletter, our seminars, our fantastic cookbooks, and club memberships.
Here you will find links to genealogical information, individual member pages, club news, links to Canadian, International and miscellaneous genealogy sites, and other interesting items, many submitted by our members.
The Business End
This website is temporarily being maintained by me, Karen Snodgrass. Rather than re-linking all of the pages to my site, viewers can navigate the site as usual.
What Is The
We are a group of men and women who meet to discuss our successes and failures while researching our genealogies. Our ancestors came from all over the world, and in our hunt to find them, we gratefully receive the support, encouragement, and ideas that our fellow members can provide to us.
Beyond the practical advice and support the club also has a well stocked Library, which is open to members on club nights. This library contains reference books, directories, and genealogical periodicals from all over the world.
As well, the PGGS sponsors special activities to aid researchers, such as a Family History Seminar in the fall, and organizing/providing access to genealogy research tours. The club also publishes a quarterly newsletter called Tree Tracer, which includes interesting snippets about Prince George and area history, articles of interest to genealogists, queries from genealogists elsewhere, regarding people who lived in our area, trivia, member news, and more. Submissions from all members are welcome.
We meet on the third Tuesday of each month, from September through June, at the Zion Lutheran Church, 180 S. Tabor Blvd., Prince George. The Library is open to members at 7:00 pm and meetings begin at 7:30 pm. We offer a variety of activities and speakers throughout the season. Executive meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm at the Zion Lutheran Church. All paid members are urged to attend both meetings.
Upcoming meetings are announced at regular meetings and are published in the Coming Events column of The Citizen. The club is always looking for new ideas for activities and/or guest speakers and YOUR input could be invaluable.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and please come back often to check for changes, additions, new members, and added surnames.
