Niagara Branch OGS Now Affiliated with CH

MEDIA RELEASE   Jan 30 2013

The Niagara Peninsula Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society and CanadianHeadstones.com have created an affiliation for the old counties of Lincoln/Welland.

Due to the overwhelming demand for genealogical information online, these two groups will work together to ensure the cemeteries of Old Lincoln and Welland Counties will be accessible via the internet.

The Niagara Peninsula Branch has decided to become a leader in this opportunity with CanadianHeadStones.com to better serve the genealogical community.

CanadianHeadstones.com has a great site with multiple search functions to allow those to search with a broader range of parameters. Niagara Peninsula Branch has approximately 10, 000 photos from the region in stock we wish to place on CanadianHeadstones.com and hope to continue doing so in the future.

The Niagara Peninsula Branch will continue to provide research assistance to the genealogy community – See our website for further details – www.ogs.on.ca/niagara

We encourage those who wish to assist with this great project to contact the Branch at: niagara@ogs.on.ca

Hi Jim, this isn't really a comment but a question as how I can post a question or questions here. I haven't been able to figure it out. I am in Louisiana and had many relative's live in the Canada West section since about 1788 when they went with the Loyalist. Please let me know if there is a way I can sign up.

Thanks,
Mark Tupper

Hi Mark - we are not a research type website; therefore we do not accept research questions. If you give me an idea of your research requirements, I may be able to re-direct you to someone who can help.
