Cemeteries

The Ottawa Branch has recorded and published indexes and transcriptions of approximately 200 cemeteries in Carleton, Lanark, Leeds, Russell, Renfrew Counties, and West Quebec. More transcriptions are being prepared for publication. In Ontario more than 3,000 cemeteries have been recorded and published, with many of these recordings held in our Branch Library. Many are now indexed in the our online database.

  1. Hello, Whilst researching my family’s genealogy, I discovered that my Great-Great-Grandparents, Robert (born @1825 in U.K.) and Mary Hamilton-Sully (died 27 Dec. 1891), are buried in Old Chelsea Cemetery along with several other Sullys, to whom I do not know how I am related. Firstly, I am elated that great effort was made to preserve the cemetery, of which I will always be grateful. Secondly, are there records that might tell me how the other Sullys are related to my Great-Great-Grandparents?

    Thanks very much!

    2. I am a board member for the Ottawa Fire Fighters Community Foundation. We have just built an extension beside our Fire Fighter Monument at Ottawa City Hall. Our future plans are to research and tell the history of the Ottawa Fire Services. We are also looking for information or pictures of two of our Line of Duty Death members Ovila Lachance d: August 1898 and Albert Picotte d: January 30, 1919
      We are also looking at any members of the six fire brigades who lost their lives prior to amalgamating to become the Ottawa Fire Brigade.
