Ontario Genealogy: Cemeteries
CemeteriesOCFA Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid - this is an index of names in many of Ontario's cemeteries. The current OCFA list (Version 5) is not complete. It has over 1 million names, but when version 6 is released this spring it will have over2 million. The names have all been entered into the list by a team of volunteers.
Also, some regional genealogical societies have resistedsupporting the OCFA, consequently, there arealmost no names from York County (Toronto area), although there maybe some in version 6. The fact that you can't find a name which youknow is on a headstone means that the cemetery hasn't been transcribedyet.
Olive Tree Genealogy recommends AncestorsAtRest.com for death records - coffin plates (with names of deceased plus birth and death dates), funeral cards, obituaries, cemetery records, memorial death cards, funeral home records, burial records and more.
There are some scattered death records and obits online from various parts of Ontario (Upper Canada). If you have ancestors in the Hamilton area, try Hamilton Library's Special Collections online, Obits for 1846 from the Hamilton Spectator.
