Genevieve Weber

A/Head of Archives

I have been an outreach archivist and community liaison with the BC Archives since 2016. I have the privilege of working with Indigenous communities from all over the province, assisting with research requests, providing access to records, and facilitating workshops on topics such as researching community history and Indigenous genealogy. Other programs I have delivered include family history workshops, special interest workshops, community tours, introductory class visits, and school activities. I am passionate about engaging people of all ages with the archives, and I enjoy public speaking.
