Anybody interested in genealogy/family history will find plenty of support in one of the local genealogical organizations; no need to duplicate it in the library system.

Ottawa Branch OGS would be happy to help produce databases and indexes. OPL could also contribute to the Ontario Genealogical Society's TONI index at http://www.ogs.on.ca/integrated/toni_database1.php

These services are already provided by a number of organizations at the City of Ottawa Archives. The archives also has access to commercial databases such as ancestry.ca. ;)
