Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society Grants

The Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) offers annual grants to local heritage organizations for genealogy related projects within the geographical area assigned to the Ottawa Branch by OGS (includes the amalgamated City of Ottawa, the United Counties of Prescott & Russell, the County of Lanark and the County of Renfrew).

The funding will go to support projects which contribute to the knowledge of genealogical techniques and to the knowledge of genealogy relating to names, places, dates and family histories. This could include creating publications, developing databases, digitization of archival material/collections, hosting training sessions and workshops, and the preservation of archival material/collections. This grant is not meant to fund employees, or other in-house labour wages, but can be used to contract services and goods.
