About this Site
This website covers the family history of a number of interrelated 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 the use of Canadian sources; how to search the census records and census substitutes; how to decipher, translate, and interpret the Catholic parish records; and more.
Names, dates, places, and sources can be found in the related genealogy Database.
