Toronto Island Genealogical Research

Genealogy is my passion.  I have been actively researching my family lines and locations for almost 40 years and, in the process, have amassed a great deal of information that might be useful to others.

Below you will find some hard to find, public domain lists that would be very interesting to those who have Toronto roots, in particular relations who lived on the Toronto Islands. 

I have posted up Tax Assessment Rolls, Federal Census, Federal Voting Registers (Voters Lists) all relating to the Toronto Islands (of days gone by).  All of these lists of people are in the public domain and available via Library and Archives Canada and other public sources.

If I can be of assistance with your genealogical interests, please feel free to contact me via the Feedback form at the bottom of this page. My research specialties include: Toronto Islands, the Commonwealth, and the USA.  I also have experience with records written in Cyrillic and Chinese.
