Simcoe County Branch of the Ontario Ontario Genealogical Society
The Simcoe County Branch is part of Region V of the Ontario Genealogical Society. Our branch was started in 1983 and currently has nearly 500 members. We are located in Central Ontario, just north of Toronto. Simcoe County is the largest county in Ontario.
Our mission statement says, we are “encouraging, bringing together and assisting those interested in the pursuit of genealogy and family history in Simcoe County”. Our members focus on preserving information that will be useful for anyone doing research on ancestors from Simcoe County. We also provide a sound base for researchers living here who have ancestors in other areas around the world.

Starving artist, promising photographer and writer wannabe.\
A brain injury and the emergency of bipolar gave me a sudden overwhelming urge to constantly create. I express myself, sometimes subconsciously, through my art, usually in the form of abstract acrylic paintings of trees or some form of self-discovery. Sometimes the paintings flow easily and other times they sit for months until the clear picture is revealed to me.
