Pioneer cemeteries + genealogy
Cemeteries and their ties to churches make them an ideal starting point for anyone interested in tracing their family history or genealogical researchers. Quinte West has more than 20 marked and unmarked pioneer cemeteries.
Until the 20th century, churches were the primary record-keepers in rural places like Quinte West. The churches typically documented residents in Trent Port (Trenton), Frankford’s village, and Sidney and Murray’s Townships. When residents of any given parish died, the churches typically recorded the deceased’s burial grounds and lineage.
- The Quinte West Public Library houses the Quinte Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, which is a not-for-profit organization managed entirely by volunteers. The volunteers are highly knowledgeable and will happily assist with genealogical and heritage researchers. The Quinte Branch also maintains its share of a names database that contains more than 1 million names overall. These names are painstakingly recorded from church baptism records, cemetery transcriptions, genealogies, census records, and newspaper records.
