The branches listed as a drop-in virtual meeting indicate that they will help with general genealogy questions during the chat.
- Contact the branch for more or detailed information, I’ve only compiled the list.
- Anyone can join the online video chat, most are free, but please register first. Some may require a membership to the branch.
- Keep an eye on their events page, as the event may be cancelled at the last minute due to illness or other human or family incidents.
- When posing a question, there will be other people in the queue, so please be respectful, and make your questions brief, knowing you can follow-up with an email.
- Check if the branch has a library or a research offer!
- Remember to review your ‘Virtual Meetings : Miss or Mr. Manners’ rulebook before joining the meeting!
