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!

Does the 8 volumes of the Carleton Place Herld contain the complete transcription of the notices? We have the indexes and wanted to check it wasn’t the same information before we ordered them for Archives Lanark
Branch Past Chair on 2016/02/19 at 07:42
Yes, they include the complete transcriptions. Take a look at Gene-O-Rama to see what is included.

Chapeaux Quebec or Ille Aux Allumette is only 10 minutes from Pembroke Ontario. I found a Charles Boisvert in a search, but the years are off. Check church records. You’d be surprised. Some of them are actually in english. It’s so close to Ontario. Good luck with your search.

My great grandfather, Charles Henry Boisvert, said he was born in Pembroke, Ontario in 1850. I am looking for his parents and siblings names and any info about them. Charles met my great grandmother, Nettie May Jones in Raisin Valley, Michigan around 1880 and they later moved to Clatskanie, Oregon where they are both buried. I have been trying to find his parents for several years. All the Boisverts I find are in Quebec. I am going to order the Burials in the Pioneer Cemetary…. Pembroke… In hopes I will gets lead there. I live in North Louisiana, USA, and would be glad to reciprocate help from here if ever needed. I will appreciate any help you can give me!

My great great grandfather who spoke French came from Upper/West Canada in 1862. He indicates on a Marriage record he was born in Prescott, Canada. His parents are Augustus and Eliza or Elizabeth Rose Wood(s). His name was Louis Wood born in 1832 give or take. Can I see the ages/dates of the Wood’s buried in Ottawa to see if these are even possible ancestors or do I need to purchase all records? As I am looking for records before 1840, is this possible? I am finding lots of Irish, Scottish but not much for French Canadian’s in this area. His parents and last name don’t sound French but it is clear in the history I find he spoke French and could not read or write.
I am wondering, how I look for a French Canadian in this time frame in this location. If you could direct me I would very much appreciate any guidance. For now, I am catching up on my history both of the US and Canada–by the way, we don’t learn enough history of Canada in US schools!

Are complete copies of back issues of the electronic version of the Ottawa Genealogist available on-line? I am a member of the Ottawa Branch and have recently requested (to the editor) that I receive only the electronic version. I would like to know whether I can discard my backfile of the printed issues and access them online instead.
Ottawa Branch - OGS on 2014/07/28 at 08:00
This is a good question. We have all copies online but currently access is restricted. We are investigating what changes can be made to allow members to view back issues.

When my mother died Arlington, Virginia, she expected that a small amount of her ashes be carried back to her childhood home and distributed at her parents’ grave. Her parents are both buried in the Protestant Cemetery (also called Riverview) i Chute a Blondeau, East Hawkesbury Township.
I’d hoped to make the trip this summer and distribute her remaining ashes. I understand that I will need permission from the cemetery and the Canadian government to do so. How do I go about getting the permissions that I need?
Ottawa Branch - OGS on 2014/04/23 at 13:00
Thanks to the help of several volunteers we have learned the following.
You will have to contact the cemetery operator directly to see if they have any policy on this.
This website discusses spreading of ashes in Ontario in general terms.
Contact information for the cemetery can be found at this site. Just select option 2 and use cemetery number 03459.
