Website & Resources

  • Quinte Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society:  Genealogy Links – “These websites are recommended by branch members to help you get started with your family history research, whether you’re researching in the Bay of Quinte area, elsewhere in Ontario, or like many of our members, in other provinces, the USA or abroad.”
  • Reymann’s Special-Karte, 1832-1870 – “Very detailed Central European maps by Gottlob Daniel Reymann (b. 1759, d. 1837).  Covers most of East and West Germany and Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Poland, northeast France, parts of Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Czechoslovakia, and former Baltic states.”
  • Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies – “The Institute’s mission is twofold: first, scholarly research and documentation; and second, outreach to a broader audience. Ongoing research involves faculty and students from many departments (as well as visiting scholars) examining how German-speaking immigrants and their descendants have both shaped their North American environment and been shaped by it. Outreach efforts center on bringing a better understanding of issues of German-American immigration, history, culture, and language to a general public as well as to school children.“  They have lots of resources on this website.
  • Commonwealth War Graves Commission – “Our casualty database lists the names and place of commemoration of the 1.7 million men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died during the two world wars.  It also records details of the 67,000 Commonwealth civilians who died “as a result of enemy action” in the Second World War.”
