Cemetery Index

At present (spring 2012) we have 148 cemeteries included in the Cemetery Ancestor Index on the Ontario Genealogical Society website.

Cemetery Transcriptions

An ongoing project of the OGS is to record all the gravemarkers in Ontario. York Region cemeteries are listed in the "Directory of Cemeteries in the Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto and the Regional Municipality of York", published by the Ontario Genealogical Society, Toronto Branch, 1989. York Region became a separate branch of OGS in January 1998, and all of the cemetery publications for this area were passed on to York Region branch from the Toronto branch in Spring 1999. Over 87% of cemeteries in York Region have been transcribed. See also York Region OGS Cemetery Transcriptions that are completed and available for sale.
