Genealogy Programs at Cloverdale Library

The Cloverdale Library will be closing for renovation on July 8 (not April 28 some of you may have heard).  The renovation is still expected to take 5-6 months! 


Our Family History department (print, microfilm, databases) and information staff will be relocating to City Centre Branch for the duration of the closure, so we will be fully available for you there.  Our Fun Family History Friday programs will continue there at City Centre Branch on the first Friday of each month. New family history programs will be scheduled and held at various branches.   Our website will have all the updates  https://www.surreylibraries.ca/services/family-history


The Library and Archives Canada website holds a large number of resources for Canadian family history research.  This presentation explores their databases and provides tips on how to use them.  Presented by Susanne Sulzberger, Archivist, Library and Archives Canada

Also, please join us for our drop-in chat – FUN FAMILY HISTORY FRIDAY on June 7, from 2:30-4:00pm.  Any genealogy topics and questions welcome!  (Note:  There will be no session in July, but sessions will resume in August on the first Friday of each month.)



We are on track to close the branch on July 8 for approximately 5 months for our renovation.  The entire Family History Department will temporarily move to our City Centre branch and re-open there on July 15.  Telephone (604-598-7328) and email (familyhistory@surrey.ca) will remain the same.  If you have any questions about any of this, please do connect with us.
