Perth County Cemeteries

Cemetery transcriptions have been done by the Perth County branch of Ontario Genealogical Society. They have managed to transcribe every cemetery in the county, though some of them may not be available for sale.
$ The publications list is online at their site (follow the link above). Price depends on the size of the cemetery. The small ones are a few dollars, the larger ones are twenty to forty dollars. If you have many ancestors buried in the same cemetery, please seriously consider purchasing the transcription and supporting Perth County Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society.

If you're not sure what cemetery your ancestors were buried in, you should visit Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid (OCFA). You can type in the names and search the database. Once you find someone in the OCFA database, check the Lookups page to see if anyone owns that transcription is willing to check for you, or contact Perth County Branch OGS regarding the transcription.

About Perth County, Ontario

Welcome to Perth County GenWeb, your online guide to Perth County Genealogy since February 1998! I am Meg Fuller, Your Coordinator for this County site.

I hope you enjoy your visit. Please email me if you have any suggestions or contributions you would like to make.

I hope you find my efforts helpful in your research of your County roots. I am unable to do additional research on your family as I do not have direct access to records. I post everything I have for all to use.

Perth County is located in south-western Ontario in about the middle of the peninsula. There are many small towns and hamlets in this area, and the largest city is Stratford. Stratford currently has a population of about 30 000. This population swells in the summer tourist season! For the most part Perth County consists of rural agricultural land. The other major industry is tourism because of the Stratford Festival.

It is one of the few counties in South-Western Ontario that doesn't touch any of the Great Lakes. Because of its location, and distance from the Great Lakes, it was one of the last areas in Ontario to be settled. People who aren't familiar with Ontario often confuse it with Perth, a city in Lanark County. If it's Perth, Lanark County you're after, or if your reference just says Perth, here's a link to the Lanark County GenWeb. But it was nice of you to visit.
