On May 25th, 2021, Sharie Aspden presented “Family History Research in Wellington County and Guelph” at our virtual monthly meeting.
In this session, Sharie guides us through the many resources available to family historians when researching ancestors in Wellington County and Guelph.
Clues to what is missing in the census data, where to find civil registration information and details on the 168 cemeteries located in Wellington County and the related tombstone transcriptions are all discussed. Learn which County newspapers are available online, how the County boundaries and place names have changed over the years as well as particulars related to the area’s schools, churches and post offices. Sharie also provides information on the County’s repositories and what you can expect to find in their collections.
