Cemeteries

The Ottawa Branch has recorded and published indexes and transcriptions of approximately 200 cemeteries in Carleton, Lanark, Leeds, Prescott, Renfrew and Russell Counties, as well as West Quebec. More transcriptions are being prepared for publication. In Ontario more than 3,000 cemeteries have been recorded and published, with many of these recordings held in our Branch Library.

Many of the Ottawa Branch publications have been indexed into our own searchable database. This is primarily Carleton County at this time.

An index to United Church Cemetery, Low, Quebec is available here.
A larger paper copy with the photographs of the tombstones is available for $20 from:
Low United Church, 85 Martindale Rd., Low, QC J0X 2C0

Springhill Cemetery, Osgoode Township has been added to the searchable database.

Prescott County Cemeteries etc.
This material was put together through the efforts of Mr Ross G H Cotton with the assistance of several others. It is his desire that the material be made readily available to interested genealogical researchers.

See the McGillvray Cemetery in Lochaber, QC
See the Protestant Cemetery of Thurso, Papineau county, QC

These two cemeteries are indexed in the cemetery database but the only location for detail information is on the links above.

Many are also indexed in the Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid (OCFA), a large computer database and/or the OGS Ontario Cemetery Ancestor Index (OCAI). OCAI is now being replace by the OGS’s The Ontario Name Index (TONI)
