About Our Collection

This site contains records for about 300 fonds (collections) - municipal records, local organizations, businesses and private collections. There are more than 30,000 images and 500 maps from various collections. Only a very small percentage have been digitized at this time.

As of May 2018, our newspaper collection up to 1937 has been digitized and made available online. In January 2019, our birth, marriage and death abstracts have been linked to the newspaper collection and are now searchable as individual records. You can explore these collections with the quick links on the right. These valuable additions have been made possible with generous funding from the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society.

More new data and digital content will be added to the site on a regular basis and as funding becomes available. We encourage the public to donate to this worthwhile project electronically through the link below, or by mail.
