Settlers of

Welcome to the Settlers of Algonquin Highlands Family Tree Project. Here you can explore the families and descendants of those settlers who were born, lived or died here in the Township of Algonquin Highlands and its surrounding hamlets.

This giant family tree of the community is being created by seniors in the three settlement areas:

Oxtongue Lake area
Dorset village area
Stanhope township

This is a work in progress. We originally imported family trees from various volunteer efforts, including family trees. We are now gathering information from various original sourced records, but do not include living persons on this website. As we progress, we are verifying previous data submitted to us.

We are looking for photographs, documents and anecdotes of these residents. If you have information or corrections to contribute, those would also be most welcome.

Please also visit our companion website Algonquin Highlands Heritage Map which maps and provides information and photographs of our ancestors, veterans and historic sites of the Township:

Both websites were made possible through a generous grant from the New Horizons for Seniors program and are supported and hosted online by the Township of Algonquin Highlands.
