Ottawa Public Library becomes FamilySearch Affiliate Library

Joy to the World Ottawa Genealogists.

We’ve been waiting for it for a long time.

Ottawa Public Library is now a FamilySearch Affiliate Library. That means library clients will now have greater and more convenient access to the wealth of genealogical resources available through FamilySearch at OPL’s 33 branches.

Due to contractual obligations, some images are only viewable online through FamilySearch centers and Affiliate Libraries
Through the affiliate program, OPL customers have access to over 350 million additional records that are otherwise restricted. This resource is available for in-library use only.

At the branches, you will have to log on to the WiFi network if using your own computer, then into your OPL account, then into FamilySearch using your own unique FamilySearch username and password.

The same resources continue to be available at the LDS Church Family History Center on Prince of Wales Drive which is open for limited hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Use and enjoy.

  1. Finally! I have been bugging them for over four years to do this; it will be especially helpful to those in the ‘hinterlands’ who have a branch library. Thanks, OPL.

  2. You can get the app for free on your computer but watch out. There is a lot of not validated info on site from members.
