Welcome to
Hastings County GenWeb

ServiPart of the Bay of Quinte GenWeb Project


Hi all! Welcome to the new Hastings County ONLY page. Yes, that's right. Hastings County has its own section now. If you're looking for the full Bay of Quinte, mosey on up this page a little and you'll sink a link that says "Bay of Quinte GenWeb Project". Hit that and you'll be taken to the index page for the whole region.

I've started with all the pictures and postcards people have sent me of Belleville and Bancroft - keep them coming! I'd especially like to see photos/postcards of the other municipalities. This is the only way people can get a sense of what this area was like in, say, the 1860s, 1960s, etc. 

What is my connection to Hastings, Lennox & Addington, and Prince Edward Counties? I've recently found a huge group of family of my mother's grandmother were from this area (perhaps you've heard of them, the Walkers and the Van Koughnets?). Am I by any means an expert at knowing this county? Certainly not - but the key is that I'll be learning with you. Feel free to ask me any questions. I'd be happy to help you as much as I can, and point you in the right direction for more help. Do I live in any of these counties? No, I wish I did! :-) They are all very nice areas of Ontario. 

Thanks for coming - and watch for future improvements!
