York Region Branch
Ontario Genealogical Society

More About Our Branch

To encourage, assist and bring together all those
interested in the pursuit of family history.

We would like to provide you with information you may find useful about the York Region Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society.

This Branch covers the area formerly known as the County of York, now known as the Regional Municipality of York. This comprises the townships north of Steeles Avenue, up to the boundaries of Simcoe County, with the boundaries of the Regional Municipality of Durham on the east, and the Regional Municipality of Peel on the west.

If you have ancestors with ties in York Region, join with almost 400 other branch members for monthly meetings with guest speakers, refreshments and fun; the sharing of information and research experiences with other members; and an opportunity to volunteer and participate in a variety of activities.
