Ottawa Branch donations

Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society received 50 per cent of the surplus from OGS conference 2017 and has been seeking good projects to fund.

Arnprior and McNab/Braeside Archives will receive $9,800 for a newspaper digitization project. This builds on the development made possible by a project funded in the first round of the LAC Documentary Heritage Communities Program.

The Upper Ottawa Valley Genealogy Group will receive $650 for outreach and publicity.

The Ontario Name Index project (TONI) will receive $5,000 to support indexing Carleton County Township Papers. TONI recently surpassed five million entries.

Canadian Headstones is planned to receive $5,000 for website upgrade.

Agreement on another digitization project is pending which will exhaust the funds available.
