Barry's Bay Heritage Society Genealogical Group


The Barry’s Bay Genealogy Group was formed in 2002 to help families find their roots. The meetings are very informal with each of us bringing our stumbling blocks to other members in hopes of getting an idea on how to proceed. Genealogy is like a puzzle and there is always one piece missing. Our meetings are held the third Wednesday of the month (Jan-Nov) at 7:00 pm at the Madawaska Valley Public Library in Barry’s Bay. New members are always welcome.


The Barry’s Bay Genealogy Group can start you on tracing your family history in the area. Our members’ research has revealed many unique, fascinating stories that now form the Barry’s Bay Heritage Walk. For details please see the Heritage Walk website.  Ask at the Barry’s Bay Railway Station for maps of the self-guided Heritage Walk or book a guided tour in the summer.
