Welcome to Ottawa Valley Irish: A Family History Weblog and Genealogy Database.
This website covers the family histories of a number of Irish and French Canadian families in the Ottawa Valley area, including the Morans of Huntley township; the Laheys and Killeens of March township; the McGlades of Perth; the McCarthys of Kitley township; and the Derouins of Otter Lake.
It also offers tips and tricks for the pursuit of Irish and Canadian genealogy: how to trace your Irish ancestry through Canadian sources; how to search the census records and census substitutes; how to decipher, translate, and interpret the Catholic parish records; and more.
For names; dates; places; and sources, please visit the related family history database at Ottawa Valley Irish: A Genealogy Database.
All genealogical information at this site is supplied to the best of my current knowledge, but is subject to ongoing revision. If you would like to suggest an addition, a revision, or a correction, please email me at mcmoran at gmail dot com.
