Do you have Books of Local History interest that you no longer need or want. The Saskatoon Genealogy Society would love to see if they would fill the gaps in our resources. 

Contact Linda at the Librarian link below to discuss.

Note- The Library will not be open Wed Mar 20th. It will be open on Thursday at 6:15 PM before the meeting 

The SBSGS has a library of books, magazines, and maps. The books include histories of towns, families, groups, time periods, churches and cemeteries. These can provide background or context to family history research, or hints to follow as you look for your family’s ancestors. We also have several “how to” books to assist those getting started in genealogical research.

We subscribe to three genealogy magazines: Family Tree (USA), Your Genealogy, and Internet Genealogy. All three provide interesting articles and up-to-date information about the fields of genealogy and family history. Copies of the front pages of magazines received recently are posted pdfhere

An assortment of historical and (relatively) current maps from North America (especially Saskatchewan) and Europe can be helpful in understanding the location of settlements and other features.

Local or town histories can be especially helpful in providing background information about our ancestors and where they lived. Currently the SBSGS Library has 79 Saskatchewan town histories, 7 from Alberta, 2 from Manitoba and 9 from Ontario. A list of our town histories can be found pdfhere. The Saskatoon Public Library, Saskatchewan Archives and the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society also have copies of Saskatchewan town histories.

Borrowing policies

All library materials may be borrowed by current SBSGS members. Items may be borrowed for one month, with a potential for one renewal. The number of items a member may borrow at once is at the discretion of the Library Co-ordinator. Non-members who are guests at a Branch meeting may review items on-site, but cannot borrow items.

Library pdfhours

The Library opens at 6:15 PM prior to each Branch meeting, and remains open during the break.

A trial of additional Library hours is currently underway. Please see the Library hours link.
