The following morning, I gathered my things and loaded up the car.

It was a short walk over to the Kingston Frontenac Library on Johnson Street.  It was just north of the Diocese offices.

The stacks and holdings

This is a pleasant, and quiet place to do research.  There are tables to work on.  I spent some time studying the stacks but that is not all they have so use the links above to explore.

It was now time to head further east and this time my goal was the Leeds & Grenville Branch of the OGS – Ontario Genealogical Society library which is housed in the Brockville Museum.


Prescott, another town on the St. Lawrence

Brockville serves as the seat for Leeds and Grenville United Counties, while it remains politically independent.  There are other villages on Hwy 2 as you make your way to Prescott. http://www.prescott.ca/  Which is also in Leeds and Grenville County.

There is the Grenville County Historical Society in Prescott and their website is at this location:  http://www.ripnet.com/sites/colonel_edward_jessup/UEL_Col_J/grenville_county_historical_soci.html

Is that Ogdensburg, New York in the distance?  You bet it is!

This ship was really moving and you can see the cabin portion in this picture right through the trees, just barely, look to the left of the shed.

Here is the big ship in full, moving so fast, I almost missed it.
