Welcome to Ottawa Valley Irish: A Genealogy Database. This is the genealogy database section of Ottawa Valley Irish: A Family History Weblog & Genealogy Database.

This website covers the family histories of a number of Irish and French Canadian families in the Ottawa Valley area, including the Morans of Huntley township (Carleton County, Ontario); the Laheys and Killeens of March township (Carleton County, Ontario); the McGlades of Perth (Lanark County, Ontario); the McCarthys of Kitley township (Leeds County, Ontario); and the Derouins of Otter Lake (Pontiac County, Quebec).

It also offers tips and tricks for the pursuit of Irish and Canadian genealogy: how to trace your Irish ancestry through Canadian sources; how to search the census records and census substitutes; how to decipher, translate, and interpret the Catholic parish records; and more.

Here at the genealogy database section of the site, you will find names, dates, places, and sources.

For family history stories; advice on research; links to other relevant websites; and random musings on matters related to genealogy, please visit the Blog.

All information at this site is supplied to the best of my current knowledge, and is subject to ongoing revision. If you would like to suggest an addition or a correction, please contact me at mcmoran [at] ottawavalleyirish [dot] com.
