Genealogy Interest Group

The genealogy interest group will no longer be holding regular meetings, but anyone interested in pursuing genealogy and needing support or anyone interested in joining a regular meeting should contact the library where their information can be passed along to the proper sources.

The Vermilion Public Library has many great resources for the genealogy enthusiast:

  • The Vermilion Standard(our local newspaper) beginning in 1906 and running to present
  • The Vermilion Signal (the Standard’s predecessor) March 1, 1906-February 27, 1908)
  • The Link 1918-1919 & the Mannville Empire January 1923 (other local papers)

Did you know that genealogy is North America’s fastest growing hobby? Put simply, genealogy is “the study and tracing of family pedigrees”.
