Welcome! Fàilte!

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

Our members are descended from Scottish ancestors, are researchers of Scottish family history and genealogy, and are simply those 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 Scots 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.

In order to access our Members Only pages you must be a member of the Scottish SIG. To join the Scottish SIG, you must also be an Ontario Ancestors member, which also gives you access to other member advantages, such as a 50% discount on history Scotland magazine and at-home access to the MyHeritage Library Edition as well as many other discounted products. Join Ontario Ancestors and the Scottish Special Interest Group by registering and purchasing a membership HERE.  Join the Ontario Genealogical Society and the Scottish SIG and let us help you with your research and help you connect with fellow Scottish researchers.
