The Oxford Branch of Ontario Ancestors (The Ontario Genealogical Society) was founded in 1979 and is dedicated to supporting and promoting genealogical research in Oxford County. We focus on collecting and preserving information that will be useful for anyone doing research on ancestors from Oxford County.

Our research library is a non-lending, private library that is open to the general public Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. It is located at 82 Light Street, Court House Square, Woodstock ON. Volunteers are on hand to assist with locating material and providing instruction on the use of equipment
