The mandate of Ontario Ancestors is "to encourage, bring together and assist those interested in the pursuit of family history and to preserve our Ontario genealogical heritage."
A simple mandate made complicated by time, distance and a rapidly changing world. The organization has purchased the equipment needed to not only digitize historic documents, texts, microfiche, and photographs, but a space to host all of these documents in a cloud based server making these documents accessible to people across Ontario and beyond. Our hope is that we can take this show on the road and make our way around to as many branches and corners of the province as possible, digitizing records as we go.
There is a lot of work to do and we need your help making this project successful. Please consider contributing to our on-going efforts to make these important documents accessible, and preserve them for generations of researchers.
