Query Tips

When you send in a genealogical query there a few basic points to cover. Put in as much information about the person you are making the query about as possible. This includes:

If you send out a general request for help, as in the examples below, you will not get much help and your query will likely be deleted from the query page (after being notified first). Nobody is really going to want to provide everything that they have.

Look Ups

You could also ask a volunteer to do a look up for you. See Genealogy Helplist Canada to see if they can help you. As this is a free service, please be polite and thank the volunteer when they give you your answer.

See also the History page on this web site for volunteers who offer do look ups from books they have.

Paid Researchers
