Ottawa Name Index

Volunteers created a Name Index to some of the genealogies, family histories and other relevant books found in the Branch Library. This information has now been included in the OGS TONI Project. If you would like to participate in TONI, see http://ogsottawa.on.ca/the-ontario-name-index-toni/

An index of names referenced in the Ottawa Branch newsletters is available here.

We are doing this as an aid to assist genealogists and family history researchers world-wide in finding their ancestors.

The process involves taking a printed genealogy or family history and reading through it page by page. Each name encountered is entered into a computer program (spreadsheet) using a standard set of instructions (These are currently being updated and will be available soon). This work can be done, a couple of hours at a time at the Ottawa Branch Library, which is located in the City of Ottawa Archives at 100 Tallwood Drive. Once a genealogy has been completed, the computer file is given to the Index coordinator for review.
