Welcome to Ontario Family History, an Ontario Ancestors site.
Ontario Family History is intended to assist the genealogical community by providing a permanent home for various Ontario genealogy/family history related website. We are currently the home of:
- Ontario Families, a gedcom site hosting family trees containing 8 family trees and more than 62,000 individuals;
- Brick Street Cemetery, the website of one of the oldest cemeteries in London, Ontario, began as the burial ground for some of Westminster Township’s earliest pioneers who arrived in 1810, with interments dating from 1813 . Although originally associated with the neighbouring Brick Street Church (Methodist Episcopal), the cemetery is now owned and operated by the Trustees of Mount Zion United Church. Most of the stones date from the 1800’s, but the cemetery is still active. In 1994, the cemetery was designated a provincial heritage site. Stewardship and restoration of the cemetery, as well as genealogical research on associated families has been undertaken by the Friends of Brick Street Cemetery (FBSC).
- S.S. Nerissa, a website providing the story of the only troopship to lose Canadian troops en route to England during World War 2. Torpedoed by U-552, the S.S. Nerissa lies about 100 miles northwest of the coast of Donegal, Ireland. All but 84 of the ship’s complement of 290 passengers and crew were lost in the sinking.
