The information on this website doesn't pretend to be complete, mainly
because of the very fluid nature of genealogical research. Most
living people have been omitted unless I've obtained their permission, or unless the
information was published in a newspaper or other public document.
sent to me by countless correspondents has been published in good faith, and has been
checked, whenever possible, for accuracy against records in the Ontario Archives, census records, etc.
However, birth, marriage and death dates written in family Bibles,
baptismal certificates, letters, etc., and carved in stone in family tradition, often differ from those in
official records. In particular, information taken from death records is more likely to
be wrong than correct, as it was obtained from people under stress, or often from people
not related to the deceased.
Please let me know about discrepancies, as the only way I can
correct information is for someone to tell me in the first place. So
contact me if you
have further information on any families on this website. I
won't publish your personal information unless you give me your permission.
