Reminder: New Blog Category – Brickwalls

Don’t forget our new category for the OGS Blog: Brickwalls.

The intent behind this is to offer those researching their family history a place to seek Рand offer Р assistance for that inevitable and much dreaded brickwall. Please keep in mind that this is not intended Рnor can it Рfunction as a research service. If you require the services of a professional genealogist, your best bet is to visit the website for the Association of Professional Genealogists: The APG also has an Ontario chapter:

Here’s how it works – aka, The House Rules:

If you have hit a brickwall, you may send a detailed, but brief, i.e. no more than 4 paragraphs, query to: blog[at] – please use Brickwall Query in the subject line of your message.

Once your query has been posted, anyone who believes they can offer assistance may contact you in one of two ways:

  1. Include contact information in your query – Keep in mind though – this is a public site!!
  2. Not comfortable with putting your info out there? No problem – folks can simply leave any info they may have in the comments sections of your post – you just have to remember to check the blog regularly to see if any comments have been left for you.

Please note: Submissions may be edited for length and the protection of personal information.

All comments are moderated before being made public
