Newsletter

The newsletter of the Kelowna and District Genealogical Society is known as the 'Okanagan Researcher'. It is published four times per year, and includes articles of interest to the members, family history and historical research for the area, and pioneer information.
Reports and articles of interest to the membership are welcomed, particularly those dealing with family history research, pioneer families, or history of the Okanagan Valley, particularly the Kelowna and immediate area.
All back issues of the Okanagan Researcher (Volumes 1 to 19) have been scanned and are available on CD in the KDGS Library.
