Haldimand County Branch,
Ontario Genealogical Society


The Haldimand County Branch of The Ontario Genealogical Society was formed in 1991 to assist people with a shared interest in genealogy and family history in the County of Haldimand. It is located on the north shore of Lake Erie.

The branch became inactive in January 2014 but, through many years of work by dedicated volunteers, there are still many resources to share with genealogists.

Haldimand County resources are useful to those whose ancestors were residents in the historical townships of Dunnville, Canborough, Moulton, North Cayuga, South Cayuga, Oneida, Sherbrooke, Rainham, Seneca and Walpole.

May Ken Hewitt thank the committee members, saying, "People truly don't realize how much people volunteer and how much time is given. The most precious thing in life that we can certainly leave behind is what we give. We're truly blessed in Haldimand with the number of people that give so graciously.
