BIG NEWS: Ancestry Library Free Online

It appears the Ottawa Public Library, and likely many others, have been able to open up access to Ancestry Library Edition, normally only available at branches, to all cardholders online.

While the Library Edition doesn't have the full capabilities of a personal subscription it does have most if not all the databases.

Take advantage while practising social distancing — stay safe at home.

Thank you for sharing that. I have a full subscription to Ancestry and love it, I use it every day. Wonderful way to do something meaningful and fun during self isolation or social distancing, or just waiting for spring :)

Cardholders for the Vancouver Public library will also have access to the Ancestry Library edition. Sadly, not elsewhere in BC, so far as I can figure....

Kingston Frontenac Public Library is also offering off-site access to Ancestry Library Edition at this time. Residents of Kingston or Frontenac County who don't yet have library cards can contact the library https://kfpl.ca to sign up online. Thanks!
