Places of Worship Project

Hobart Memorial Church, Oro Township, Simcoe County

This is part of a larger project initiated in 1985 by the Ontario Genealogical Society. The goal of the project is to identify the location of existing records of baptisms, marriages, burials and other related data for all places of worship in Ontario in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries.

In this regard, volunteers from the Simcoe County Branch are presently collecting and compiling the following information:

  • a list of congregations in Simcoe County from the first settlements to early 1900
  • a list of missions and circuits before congregations were established
  • the location of baptism, marriage and burial records for these places of worship
  • historical outline of each denomination.
