Do you also have roots in Ontario?I am researching the Lang Family: Baden, Germany to Waterloo Co. Ontario, 1846. Reinhold Lang arrived with his wife, Barbara Vogt and established a tannery in Waterloo Ont. He was accompanied by his sister Barbara. Other family members arrived later, and settled in Grey Co., Ontario.Several families from Ireland to Renfrew Co, Ontario, 1830-1850 (O'Meara, O'Gorman/Gorman, Barry). These are all founding families in the Ottawa Valley, and seem to be totally intermarried. Considerable genealogical information exists on many members of these groups. O'Brien family: Co. Waterford, Ireland to Antigonish Co., Nova Scotia approx. 1848, later to Renfrew Co., Ontario, approx. 1880. John O'Brien met and marrried Mary E. Cleary shortly after his arrival in Nova Scotia. Two of his sons, Michael John and John Bruce later moved to the Ottawa Valley.Families from Scotland to Lanark Co, Ontario 1818-1820: (Macdonald, Barrett). These families, members of Scottish settler societies, originally settled near Perth, Ont., and later moved to the Ottawa Valley.I would be delighted to hear from anyone who might be connected to any of these groups, and will gladly share any information that I have.
