Library Surname Index Cards

Library Surname Index Cards

The early library teams produced a surname index card for each surname found in the Essex Branch library collection.  The card describes where the surname was found, listing each library call number and the name of the publication.   This practice was maintained for many years however it was discontinued many years ago.    Many additional surnames have been added to the collection which do not have a card produced, therefore it would be recommended that all indexes be reviewed in your search for your ancestor’s information.

The Essex Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society has its library collection housed on the second floor of the main branch of The Windsor Public Library 850 Ouellette Avenue, Windsor, Ontario, N9A 4M9.  Items concerning Essex County only are housed in the Local History Room, also on the 2nd floor.

On the following table, click on the letter representing the first letter of your ancestor’s surname to view the cards.  If the desired publication has been digitized, it can be found on the Members Only Page, if not digitized it can be found on the library shelves only.  We are currently in the process of posting all of our library materials which are not restricted by copyright.  If you need assistance please contact the Essex County Branch of the OGS librarian.
