Genealogy Research Online Resources

There are many Canadian genealogy research online resources; below is a list of the best of them to get you started. Unless otherwise noted, all are free to use. There are, of course, paid/membership resources as well, but we recommend starting with the free options first. The last section has links to forms that can help you organize and document your research findings. And of course, if you’re researching local (Newcastle/Clarington/Clarke County) ancestors, drop by the Historical Room at the Newcastle Community Hall any Tuesday or Saturday morning from 9:30-noon and we may be able to help you out!
