St. Andrews West, the oldest parish in the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry in Ontario, is located in Cornwall Township, in Stormont. The church and its congregation have strong ties to the early history of the province. In fact, the Parish Hall was used as a hospital in the War of 1812. The St. Andrews Church building, as it stands today, was built in 1860. It in the Gothic style, featuring a lofty bell tower and spire. The recreated ‘Log Church’ is a replica of one of the first Catholic churches in Upper Canada.

The first settlers to the parish arrived in the 1780s from New York state. Rev. Roderick MacDonell of Leek arrived from Scotland in 1785. The majority of early settlers to the parish were United Empire Loyalists and others seeking asylum in British North America (Canada) after the American Revolution. One of the largest groups to settle were members of the K.R.R.N.Y. (Kings Royal Regiment of New York).

This book is a compilation of genealogical and historical information gathered by the late Edwin McDonald who set a goal of documenting the thirty eight original families who settled in St. Andrews West. The descendants of those original settlers spread far and wide across Canada, the USA and around the world. Edwin McDonald recorded the history of the families and community by writing out his findings on index cards. As his memory began to fade with age, he decided to share his records with the author who compiled a lifetime of reseach into this volume. So let this book of "Index Cards" be Edwin McDonald's story of St. Andrews, West, for they do tell a story.

The author acknowledges that there are errors, items missed and other items incomplete. However this book provides much hard to find information, based on oral and documented history, which will assist the family historian in their quest to research the early settles of St. Andrews, West and their descendants.

NOTE about print quality:
GlobalGenealogy.com acquired MacDonald Research Centre after the passing of its founder and primary transcriber/compiler, Duncan MacDonald. We are pleased to make his books available under the new MacDonald Research imprint. Each book has been reprinted as it was prepared by Mr. MacDonald, without corrections or additions. Modern technology helped us reproduce the original work in as-good-as, or better quality as that which was originally published. Much of MacDonald's original work was created on a typewriter. His well-worn "masters" were made on a photocopier. We've cleaned them up as much as possible without re-keying all of the content resulting in books that are useful and complete, but of a print quality that reflects the technology of the time in which they were orignally published.
