We now have genealogical information compiled for the following New Toronto families (more to come).  The family trees posted here are either contributed by the family members or have been obtained solely through public records, such as the 1881, 1901 and 1911 Canadian censuses.  Every effort is made to suppress the details for living people unless permission is provided by that persion.  If you wish to contribute to this list, or have any concerns or corrections to the information posted here, please contact our secretary at [email protected].
