Have you exhausted all avenues of research of the commercial databases?
Feel like you’re missing out on the ‘local’ data?
Why not look in to the Special Interest Groups Indexes? These are fabulous little nuggets of transcribed data specific to the counties which are a part of the Ontario Ancestors family of 34 SIGs and Branches.
Many many volunteers have spent hours transcribing, creating and double checking this data. What a great effort by genealogists who are as passionate as you are about accurate information. They deserve a round of applause!
The Indexes covered on the link above : OGS Society, Brant Branch, Bruce & Grey Branch, Elgin Branch, Essex Branch, Haldimand-Norfolk Virtual Branch, Halton Peel Branch, Hamilton Branch, Huron Branch, Kawartha Branch, Kent Branch, Lambton Branch, London & Middlesex Branch, Niagara Peninsula Branch, Ottawa Branch, Oxford County Branch, Quinte Branch, Simcoe County Branch, Sudbury District Branch, Thunder Bay Branch, Toronto Branch, Waterloo Region Branch, Wellington Branch, York Region Branch. Note: Some of these will be free to access while others will need a membership to access, these are marked with an ‘M’.
