This genealogy and history web site is devoted to any and all
types of information concerning Wolfe Island, Howe Island,
Garden Island, Simcoe Island and Amherst Island.
This site is a repository of information on these islands.
This site had been closed since 2008.
But was reopened in Sept of 2012. Jen Wylie no longer has the time it takes to
keep the site updated so she asked me if I would take it over until she is able to work on it again.
My name is Thelma Moye & I will add some information about me at a later date.
Please feel free to use the information here for your personal research.
My apologizes for any links which no longer work, or any errors please let me know if you find any & I will try to correct them.
Thanks for your support!
This site has been reopened for updates & new data. Please e mail me with any questions or anything that needs to be added at

Notes from the Webmaster:
February 28, 2014...Added some obits to Amherst Island & Wolfe Island. Also caught up on the e mail for the site. If you ever send an e mail & don't get an answer right off please be patient I will answer all of them but at times I get backed up. I am thinking of starting a page on Facebook, we will see I haven't made up my mind on that yet.
April 7, 2014...Added another obit to Amherst Island. If anyone has an obit or anything to add to this site please email it to me & I will add it. I want to thank every one for sending things in.
April 18,2014.....Added another obit to Wolfe Island obits. Also checking for any broken links. If you find any please e mail me.
Sept. 11, 2014...Under Researchers at the left of this page I have added some e mail's I have received from people looking for their ancestors. Check and see if you can help them I have added address that I have or you can write me & I can forward them. If you have anything to add to this site I would really like to hear from you. I Plan on doing a new page on Jen Wylie who has been busy writing books. I think you will enjoy reading her books, I know I have..
UPDATES FROM PREVIOUS YEARS
I am happy to announce that the Frontenac County Schools Museum is now up and running once more.
The museum is now located in Barriefield just east of Kingston, north of Highway 2 (on the opposite side of Highway 2 is Old Fort Henry) at 414 Regent Street.
There are also new hours. July and August: Tuesday to Friday 9am – 4pm, and Saturday 11am – 3pm. During the rest or the year September – June: Monday and Wednesday 9am -12pm. or by appointment.
Phone Number: 613-544-9113. There is also information on the new web site which is www.fcsmuseum.com.
Please don't forget that you can search THIS SITE using the Freefind search engine at the top left. Unfortunetly there is no soundex search so be sure to try various name spellings. The transcriptions on this site are as accurate as possible in spelling, and we all know how terrible some of our ancestors, and those who wrote down records, were in the past! Best of luck!
