Welcome to the Ontario Project! Our goals are:

  • 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
  • to create Free Space pages for places, events and other topics of genealogical interest pertaining to Ontario

Ready to Help?

Want to help, but don't know where to start? How about:

  • Checking out the list of free-space pages below. We have profiles in need of biographies, profiles in need of connection to the main tree, people with no profiles.
  • Adding resources to the list below.
  • Working on our maintenance categories Category:Ontario Unsourced Profiles and Category:Ontario Unconnected Profiles
  • Make sure that all the Lieutenant Governors of Upper Canada have profiles, succession boxes, and are linked to the main tree. Progress: profiles 15/17, succession boxes 0/0, linked to main tree 6/17
  • Make sure that all the Premiers of Canada West have profiles, succession boxes, and are linked to the main tree. Progress: profiles 13/13, succession boxes 13/13, linked to main tree 5/13. Thanks to Bob Jewett.
