Publications

Since 1973, the Ottawa Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society has produced over 250 publications to assist genealogists and family historians in researching their ancestral roots.

Most of these publications relate to the five counties of Eastern Ontario for which the Branch has particular responsibility: Carleton, Lanark, Renfrew and the United Counties of Prescott and Russell. However, a significant number also cover other counties of Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.

These publications include cemetery inscriptions and burial records, census records and indexes, vital statistics from local newspapers, parish registers and records, and land, settlement and immigration records.

To ensure the preservation of these records and widen their audience, in 2016, the OGS, on behalf of the Branch, signed an agreement with Global Heritage Publishing [aka Global Genealogy] to assume the role of publishing, advertising and marketing this collection. Consequently, Ottawa Branch has ceased its mail order operations, though its publications will still be sold by the Branch, at sales events, for a limited time.

All of these publications are now available on the Global website which can be accessed by clicking on the link below.

    3. Question: The OCFA refers to a Fraser Family cemetery in Bagot Township, Renfrew County, as Ottawa Branch publication no. 89-04. It is not on your catalogue list. Is there some way of obtaining that transcription? Thanks …

      1. Our cemetery publications do not have pictures but have a transcription of each stone in the cemetery. Some may have some additional information on the cemetery itself.

        1. Generally speaking the mentioned publications are tombstone transcriptions, except the first one, and families are usually buried in the same plot. Also other family members could be buried in same cemetery. It would be best to look at the books/CD’s to see what’s there. Copies at our Branch Library, Library and Archives Canada, Ottawa Public Library at Centrepoint and in the Ottawa Room of the main branch of the Ottawa Public Library. Also check out the Cemeteries listing under Research on our web site.
