Research and General Look-ups

If your ancestors lived in the County of Wellington, our volunteers will undertake a limited amount of research using online indexes and visiting resource centres in Wellington County.  Before submitting your request, there are a number of sources listed under the Resources in Wellington tab on our website that you should check out first.  Also, we recommend that you do a search for the name of the person you are interested in by using TONI (The Ontario Name Index), a search engine on the OGS website.  The Branch has the majority of the names from the cemeteries in Wellington County listed on TONI and you can order and download the cemetery transcription directly from the OGS site.

While our researchers will offer advice and suggestions free of charge, if you are looking for copies of source items such as newspaper announcements and articles, photographs of cemetery markers, addresses from city directories, details from census records, funeral home records, birth (1869-1914), marriage (1869-1929) and death records (1869-1939), there is a minimum charge of $10.00 per lookup, payable in advance. Our researchers are volunteers but there may be fees and/or expenses associated with your request.

Cheques should be made payable to – Wellington County Branch OGS – and mailed to the address below.
