Ontario Origins/Quebec Quests
Ontario and Quebec Canadian Family History Research
I am a graduate of the National Institute of Genealogical Studies and have Professional Learning Certificates in Genealogical Studies for both Canadian and American Records. Specializing in Ontario and Quebec research, I have easy access to the Archives of Ontario, the records of Quebec's Institut Drouin, the Toronto Reference Library and the Canadiana Department of the North York Public Library. With twenty-five years experience, I have expertise in the areas of Ontario's and Quebec's vital records, newspapers, church, probate, and land records, as well as census records for all of Canada. For those families who immigrated to Canada from England and Scotland, I am also able to conduct research in British records. For those families who moved on to other provinces or to the United States, I can also access many of their records.
My fees are $30 an hour, with a four hour minimum, and include a full written report and copies of all documents obtained. I also offer specific searches in Ontario Vital Records and indexed census records at $15 for each individual's birth, marriage or death, and in the case of census records, a family group. Packages available upon request. If you wish to do most of the research yourself, consultations with professional guidance are also available.
I am a member of the Ontario Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists as well as Past Chair and Current Program Co-ordinator of the Halton-Peel Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. A former elementary school teacher, I have also been an instructor in Canadian and British genealogical research for the Adult Learning Centre of a local school board.
