Ontario Ancestors / The Ontario Genealogical Society

Welcome! Fàilte!

Welcome to the Scottish Special Interest Group (SIG) of Ontario Ancestors. Membership in the Scottish SIG is restricted to members of Ontario Ancestors. 

Our members include those who are descended from Scottish ancestors, those who are researchers of Scottish family history and genealogy, and those who are simply interested in learning more about Scottish history and culture. Since the 12th century, Scots have left their homeland and settled all over the world. The descendants of the Scottish diaspora are proud to claim their Scottish heritage and interested in tracing their Scottish roots. Fortunately, this is easier to do than for some other countries. In our website you will find resources to help with your Scottish genealogy, newsletters, announcements and events of interest.

Join our mailing list to receive occasional email messages, between four and six per annum generally,  regarding events, resources and other updates on our site or about our special interest group or Ontario Ancestors. Just add your email address to the sign-up form on the right.
