Find A Real Treasure: S-I-L Updated

The SIL is comprised of family surnames of interest to our members, past members and library contacts (AKA the providers), based on their research focus in Hastings, Prince Edward, and neighboring Counties. Download the files and check out the possibility that one or more of our SIL providers have similar surname research interests to you.

If you decide that you would like to make contact with a provider, send us an email to with “SIL Contact Request” in the subject line. In the text of your message include, at a minimum, the code number of the provider(s) and the surname(s) in which you are interested, plus a brief note about the primary ancestors in each surname. This will help the provider to better determine if you are researching, for example, the same Jones family.

We will forward your contact request email to each provider you have identified and we will ask them to consider replying to your SIL message. It will be entirely up to them, much like tree owner requests on Ancestry and other well-known genealogical websites.

Good Hunting!
