Research Requests

U.O.V.G.G. members may submit one free name or couple (marriage request) for research from sources listed below per calendar year. Please include your membership number with the request. Payment is expected for subsequent requests at rates specified below.

Non-members must submit payment with each request. The non-refundable fee is $ 10.00 per name or couple along with Self-addressed stamped envelope.

A self-addressed stamped envelope must accompany all requests. Out-of-Canada envelopes must have Canadian postage, the money to cover Canadian postage or an International Reply Coupon.

OCFA (Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid) & OACI (Ontario Ancestor Cemetery Index) transcription requests are $5.00 for first person & $2.00 for each additional person (non-refundable).

All research requests should be sent by mail to the
Upper Ottawa Valley Genealogy Group,
P.O. Box 972,
Pembroke, ON, Canada K8A 7M2

All requests must be specific. The name must be accompanied by an approximate time period and location. For example a search of all cemeteries or census transcriptions for Renfrew County or Pontiac County will not be undertaken. We are unable to reply to very general requests such as "please send me all the information you have on such & such family".
