Pay per view records, including some non-book, non-name specific items are available through our Pay-Per-View site.

The Ontario Name Index (TONI) is a mega-index of names with the goal of including every name found in any publication relating to Ontario.  The index will point people to the location of the information about that name. The location may be a Branch document, a web site, a microfilm, a family history, an archive, etc.  TONI is an indexing program and NOT a digitization program. Unlike some of our commercial and non-commercial colleagues, we are not limiting TONI to digitized sources and indexing them.

Additional OGS databases available to members include:
