Cemetery records on the Internet

These general databases are particularly useful in locating cemetery records:

  • Ontario Genealogical Society : Cemetery Index / compiled by the Ontario Genealogical Society.
    OGS puts particular emphasis on the creation of indexes. One major OGS project, for over 30 years, has been the recording of the inscriptions in all of Ontario 's cemeteries.
  • TONI: The Ontario Name Index
    Maintained by the Ontario Genealogical Society
  • Find A Grave
    Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience. Information is provided primarily by individual volunteers.


Generally 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Monday to Friday. An appointment in advance is recommended.
