The Cowichan Library has the resources to help families who want to learn more about their history to do that.

Monica Finn is a Customer Service Librarian at the branch and says there is a database available for use on site…

Finn says there’s also a family history centre in Duncan that can help people search out long lost family history.

In the meantime, the Cowichan Library will be hosting a free talk, from local historian T.W. Paterson this Thursday afternoon (Apr 3).

Paterson is expected to talk about the importance of writing memoirs and preserving family histories.
