Bytown or Bust
Ottawa Branch member Allan Lewis has a large web site for history and genealogy in the Ottawa area. It is located at www.bytown.net and consists of about 1,600 web pages (so far). The site has a dedicated Google search engine on every page, where visitors are able to search for surnames, geographic locations or subject matter. It also covers immigration from the U.K and Ireland as well as emigration from Ontario to the United States and Western Canada in the 1800’s. Visitors are able to contact others who fall within their circle of family research and, by e-mail to me, can post inquiries and interact with other researchers. This web site is free.
