Welcome to the website of the Nanaimo Family History Society. Our society was formed in 1981 and is one of the oldest family history societies in British Columbia.
Our society strives to create a friendly atmosphere where people interested in genealogical research and family history, not only in Nanaimo, but also across Canada and around the world can come together. We promote, foster and encourage members to learn the principles, methods and effective techniques of genealogical research. We also collect, preserve, display and share information that may lead to a greater understanding of genealogy.
Our meetings are held on the third Monday of each month (except July and August) at 7:00 p.m. in the Beban Park Social Centre, Rooms 7 and 8, 2300 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, BC.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our site.
