Qualicum Beach Family History Society strives to promote the study of genealogy and family history through accurate, ethical and thorough research principles and techniques.

We maintain a library of genealogical books, magazines and research material, provide workshops, courses and speakers to assist you with your research and publish a quarterly journal..

We also offer a means of worldwide contact and exchange of information through our member interests area.

Our meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (except July and August) in the meeting room at the rear of the Royal Canadian Legion, 180 Veterans Way, Qualicum Beach on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Guests are always welcome.

We hope you enjoy browsing our website.

 Tell Us A Story Contest

Qualicum Beach Family History Society members are invited to enter a “Tell Us a Story” contest.  $100.00 will be awarded to the entrant whose entry, in the opinion of the judging panel, best meets the contest criteria.

Our ancestors are much more than a compilation of birth, marriage and death dates on a pedigree chart. They were real people with real lives filled with unique stories worth sharing and remembering.  Why not write about an episode or event that brings your ancestor to life?  For more information on this contest and how to enter, please click here.      (Please note:  This contest is open open to QBFHS current members).
