OGS Oxford

"To encourage, bring together and assist those interested in the pursuit of family history
and to preserve our Ontario genealogical heritage."


For researchers unable to visit our library, volunteers will do a limited search on the resources in our library. We are not professional genealogist and cannot do your complete family history, but we can search for vital information that will help you in your search for ancestors. All research is undertaken subject to the availability of volunteer help. Please allow sufficient time for our volunteers to do a thorough search ( 6 – 8 weeks) and please be patient as there may be a lengthy turn around time for some research. A successful search may depend upon how accurately you are able to describe the search you wish to have done. Remember that an unsuccessful search requires the same amount of time as a successful one. There is no refund for an unsuccessful search.

We are a non-profit, volunteer organization and all fees go to expand our collection and maintain our library.

Fee Schedule:(all fees are payable in advance)

Requests for research and/or lookups should be sent by mail or e-mail (oxford@ogs.on.ca) and will be answered in the sequence in which they are received. We accept cheques drawn on Canadian and U.S. banks and we are now accepting PayPal.
