TONI (The Ontario Name Index)
- Indexes, particularly name indexes, are the most valuable thing a genealogical society can produce.
- 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.
- TONI will be on the public part of the OGS website so that anyone can access it.
Working on TONI includes:
- converting and importing the existing electronic indices at both the Branch and Society level i.e. Ontario Cemetery Ancestor Index, Ottawa Branch Name Index;
- digitizing and importing existing hard copy indices;
- indexing existing electronic and hard-copy documents and importing them, including family histories, Tweedsmuir histories, items in the e-library, etc. Branch publications such as cemeteries, census, newspapers and other transcriptions that they have done; and
- Indexes to digitized documents produced for other organizations as part of the scanning project could be included with permission of the owner.
