The indexing program for the Family Histories is nearing completion. This project allows us to look-up the surname in which you are interested. Rather than useing up valuable research time looking through about 700 Histories, the index will direct you to the Histories that contain the name of interest. Only a few of these Histories lodged by their authors actually have an "all-name" index, but all will soon have a surname index for quicker identification.{Oct 2010}

If you are a Branch member and have an announcement relating to Perth County Branch OGS, please email Roger Harris=Click Here
to have it included on this web page. A separate section will be set up specifically for Reunions.
