Family history organizations all over the world are involved in transcribing the information from grave markers—and Toronto Branch OGS is no exception.

Most of the small churchyards and community cemeteries in today’s Toronto have been completed, as have some large cemeteries.

Once the transcription of a cemetery has been computerized and checked it is available as a publication and the index is added to The Ontario Name Index (TONI).

There are many large cemeteries yet to do, and many of the older transcriptions need minor updates.

If you would like to help, please contact the committee.
