Whether you are a member of the Simcoe County Branch, The Ontario Genealogical Society or not, you have probably benefited from the large number of resources we have worked to create. So why should you join?

Membership in a genealogical society will help you further your research through sharing experiences and common interests with others. Your membership fee will also help fund our many projects that record and preserve historical information for future generations. Without the work of organizations such as ours, much of this information would slowly disappear over time. Unfortunately, without members our organizations would be unable to exist.

If you have benefited from our Census Indexes, Cemetery Transcriptions, Settlers Database or any of the other resources we have recorded and preserved, then please consider joining our Branch. We are a non-profit organization so all money raised is put back into projects. To see what we are currently working on, visit the Projects portion of our website.

There are many benefits to becoming a Simcoe County Branch member.
