OGS is building a photo collection of Ontario churches

Sometimes the only existing connection you have to a place where an ancestor lived is a building, often a church no longer functioning as a place of worship. Visit and it's where you gravitate.
When you can't visit OGS has a project to post photos of Ontario churches. To contribute go to https://ogs.on.ca/church-locator/.
So far only nine churches labelled Ottawa are in the collection, Britannia United, Carsonby United, Christ Church Anglican at Burritt's Rapids, Holy Trinity Anglican at Metcalfe, Our Lady Of The Visitation Roman Catholic at Gloucester, Southminster United, St. Andrews Presbyterian at Kars, Trinity Anglican at Bearbrook, Trinity United at Kars.
Search for a church photo at https://ogs.on.ca/databases/ontario-church-photo-collection/.

Often an internet search of the church name will surface photos too.
