Genealogy Helplist Canada is a list of volunteers willing to lookup specific information related to genealogy in Canada using reference materials at institutions near them, or otherwise easily accessible to them. Our volunteers are not expected to do your research for you, but may be able to provide answers to specific requests.

  The former Cemetery Photo WebPage lookup site is no longer available.
  The Genealogy Helplist Canada will now accept postings from those offering to take digital cemetery photos.

IMPORTANT NOTICE to Volunteers: There has been a problem with the volunteer registration form but this has now been corrected. If you had submitted an offer for lookups and have not been acknowledged, please resubmit your information.

Before making a lookup request, please read our Guidelines For Requesting Help. Please do not neglect to say "Thank You". We value our volunteers and do not wish to lose them.
