I am coming into Windsor from out of town to research my fsmily tree. I would like to visit the Library's obituary archives. I would like to know if I would need a library card, if I need an appointment, and if it is free.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

This info from the Windsor Public Library website:

"The Central Library maintains a microfilm collection of the Windsor Star from 1893-present. If you know the date you need, you can request the film and look at the story. If you don't know the exact date, there is indexing available but the level of indexing does vary depending on the year needed."

Search your names and get publication dates of obits from this site before you go:

Make sure you check hours (specify you need access to archives, OGS records, local history, newspaper microfilms) and confirm visitor's policy:

Yes, you need a card, but it's easily obtained with the type of ID mentioned below. Seems like a pretty easy process to me.


All non-residents or visitors requesting library cards must provide appropriate identification clearly showing your name and home address. More than one piece of ID may be required to verify both identity and residence.

Acceptable forms of ID include but are not limited to:

Passport
Ontario driver's license
Ontario health card
Utilities bill
Personalized cheque book
Pay stub
Government cheque
Visitors from outside Canada may also use the following ID:

Valid driver's license issued in country/state/region of home address
Valid government ID issued in country of home address
Valid immigration documentation from Immigration Canada (eg Visitor Visa)
Valid passport
