The Content of FaysGenealogy.Com

Fay’s Genealogy contains genealogy and family history information of Fay and Earl’s family lines that Fay has gathered in the past 45 years through research and collaboration. As many of these ancestors settled in the Township of Whitewater Region, Renfrew County, Ontario, Canada, there was a natural progression to expand the research (about 20 years ago) to include all the early families, the focus being 1840-1920’s.
