Our Members

Our members offer research, consulting, publishing, lecturing, and/or teaching services. Specialties are listed with each member. Most members who provide research services utilize basic genealogical sources, such as census returns, vital statistics, probates, religious records, land records, etc.

Our members may assist novice or experienced family researchers who are unable to undertake personal research in Ontario. Individual members should be contacted directly regarding fees and availability. Please state your research needs and include a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) with a postal enquiry.

The listings on this website have been supplied by each member. The Ontario Chapter of APG does not assume responsibility for agreements contracted between individuals.
