I'm the project coordinator for the Ontario Team of the Canada Project. Our goal is to bring together WikiTreers with an interest in Ontario families to share resources and help with research; to create and improve profiles of notable Ontarians; and to create Free Space pages for places, events and other topics of genealogical interest pertaining to Ontario. I'm also the Ontario Project liaison for the Categorization Project.

On a personal note, I'm a retired book editor and children's author who still dabbles in indexing.

Hi Laurie;

Just signed up with you. Would love to know what kind of pictures are acceptable? (eg people, cemeteries, land scapes, etc.)

Hi Laurie,

I don't have any pictures from Canada, I have only one very distant string in my family from Canada. I think I will have a look if there will be a Slavic team for the Scan-A-Thon. For them I can scan some pictures from my Serbian family.

Thanks for getting in touch Jelena

Hi Laurie - Thank you so much for adding the picture and information of John Douglass via the Ontario project! Had no information on him other than he was a brother to my 3rd great grandfather - so nice to be able to know more about my family! Am still learning wikitree and now it looks as if I am needing to learn about adding categories too - ah so much to do so little time. ;) You deserve a special award for what you are doing - thank you again. - SAS

Hi Laurie!!

Great to ‘meet’ you! Your last name is a familiar one. There are still Cruthers that live in the area. Manitou is a great little town. I’ll be headed out that way to see my dad this weekend. He owns a farm just out of town. If you ever do visit let me know! Look forward to working with you in the Ontario project!

Hey TC, No need to do that. Ontario categories are confusing to say the least. We're in the process of recategorizing them and trying to get the word out about using towns, cities, etc. rather than the higher level categories. Cheers, Laurie
