Welcome to Oxford Branch

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 researching ancestors who lived in Oxford County.

Our research library is a non-lending, private library and is located at 82 Light Street, Court House Square, Woodstock, ON. We are open to the public, without appointment, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Volunteers are on hand to assist with locating material and providing instruction on the use of equipment.
