The Ontario Genealogical Society and its local branches offer so much more than just census details and birth-marriage-death records. Local county and municipal “directories” offer a snapshot of your ancestors’ lives and social context at a particular point in the past. Here are some sample communities described in the Directory for Hastings County for 1869.
The Digitization Project has officially begun and we’re excited! The first of many books has been digitized and will be available shortly online. Stay tuned for access information! OGS President Steve Fulton working with FamilySearch employees at RootsTech to begin the scanning of these valuable genealogical resources – The Vernon’s Directories!
