Historic Westmeath Township

If you have branches of your family tree in the Upper Ottawa River Valley area, you’ll want to stop by the Historic Westmeath Township Project website.

It is a rich source of information on a number of families of the historic Ottawa Valley — check the Family Registry section — and the lumber companies of that area, among many other bits of useful information.

That’s how I came upon the site: Tracking my great grandfather, I found a brief notice in the Ottawa Journal that because of a serious leg wound, he returned home from his job as slide master with the Upper Ottawa Improvement Company. In my search for information on the company I stumbled upon the HWT Project.
