Archives of Ontario - More Real Genealogy Stories Needed

The Archives of Ontario recently launched their first Real Genealogy Stories Display featuring OGS member Debbie Watt. The story of her ancestor is in the Reading Room.

Real Genealogy Stories, is a new initiative to promote genealogy research done by OGS members at the Archives of Ontario. Selected participants will be asked to fill two of our state-of-the-art, exhibition quality cases in the Reading Room for the purpose of highlighting their family history and records held by the Archives of Ontario.

Exhibitions will be on display for three months and will also be featured on the Archives of Ontario website, which is frequented by millions of visitors. This will allow further people to experience a family history who may not be able to visit in person.

This program is open to OGS members only and can be a chance for you to display your hard work and genealogical evidence.

If you are interested in participating, fill out the application form available in the Members Only area and mail back to the address on the form.

All questions about the Real Genealogy Stories project may be directed to the Archives of Ontario. Call 416.327.1600 or email

The next deadline is November 30th!
