OGS Library Donations
The Hamilton Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, houses its library collection at Lincoln Alexander School Rm. 1. While we are grateful for all offers, our collection space is limited and we simply cannot accommodate all book donation requests.
If you feel you have a book of unique genealogical interest that you wish to donate to our library collection, please contact either the Chair or Vice Chair our office at 905-318-8086.
The Hamilton Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society is particularly interested in collecting Family Histories. Our goal is to collect a history of every family with roots in the City of Hamilton and County of Wentworth. Should you wish to have your Family History become part of our collection, we would be pleased to accept it. Please ensure that it is bound in some manner, a binder would suffice. This will ensure that all of your hard work will remain a cohesive collection and also make it easier for fellow genealogists to gain the most benefit from your research.
Please contact us if you are interested in donating your family history.
people may also wish to donate their family papers or research
collections to our branch. We
regret that we cannot accept these.
Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities or the staff to store,
maintain and preserve collections of loose documents, family photos,
etc. If you wish to ensure the long term preservation your family
papers, we encourage you to seek out facilities that are mandated and
properly equipped to store and maintain collections of this type.
Once an item has been donated, it is considered to be the property of The Hamilton Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society and, beyond legal requirements, the donor can make no restrictions on its use or eventual disposition.
