Leeds & Grenville OGS Branch Online Presentation
Join us on Monday, December 13that 7:00 pm for a presentation on Ontario Records at FamilySearch by Stephen Young.
Stephen’s presentation will start with a short introduction about the history of FamilySearch and its products and services. He will then demonstrate how to access Historical Records on FamilySearch with specific attention to some of the basic indexed Ontario collections and how to use them:
- Vital records (births, marriage, and deaths), and cemetery records
- Census enumerations
- Tax assessment records (a new collection currently underway)
Stephen C. Young was born and raised in London, Ontario and now lives in Provo, Utah with his wife, Michelle. They are the parents of three sons and two daughters, and grandparents of six (so far). Much of Stephen’s earliest and ongoing research focuses on his Young family from Yorkshire, England who immigrated to the Toronto area in the 1830s and were amongst the earliest pioneers in Hibbert Twp., Perth County and West Wawanosh Twp., Huron County. An employee of the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 1988, he is currently a Deputy Chief Genealogical Officer for FamilySearch International, with responsibilities involving Canadian and British records. Stephen has contributed seven articles to OGS Families, continues to write and lecture on family history topics, and will be retiring from a 33-year career with FamilySearch this coming March. Future plans include much more research and writing and travel back home in Ontario.
