Get research help

Several members of our branch are willing to do lookups and answer brief research questions.  Please drop us a line, and provide as much information as possible!  It helps us know if we can help you, find what you are looking for more quickly, and avoid duplicating research you have already done.

All work is done on a volunteer basis, but we ask that you consider making a donation to the branch.

  • We are happy to provide up to 1/2 hour of research to all OGS members.  Just let us know your OGS membership number.
  • If you are not a member, or have a question that will take more than 1/2 hour to answer, we ask that you consider a minimum $20 donation.

Your donations help us to continue developing genealogical resources in the local area.  You can send a cheque or money order to:

Thunder Bay District Branch, OGS
PO Box 10373
Thunder Bay, ON P7B 6T8

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, click here, which will take you to the Ontario Genealogical Society provincial page. Select “Donation to an OGS Branch” and type “Thunder Bay District Branch” as your recipient.  Only the Society is able to issue receipts for tax purposes.
