What we do:

The volunteers at KARA staff our family Research Centre. It is open four afternoons a week. The public is welcome to visit the KARA Centre. Here we teach others how to do family history research.

We publish a family history magazine. We also research, write and publish heritage books.

We complete research on a fee basis. All payments go to support KARA. We run workshops to teach seniors how to use computer genealogy programs. We run workshops about using Word documents to write a family history. We participate in local heritage events. Our commitment is amazing. The results are a great contribution to the heritage of our community.

We House a Great Collection

We need your help in the building of our library collection. Contribute a copy of your family history. Contribute old photographs or postcards. Contribute newspaper clippings. Give us your old books about local Ontario history. Contribute old school year books. We also have a small collection of city directories. It needs to grow.
