Coilbound Edition



The memorial stones in this cemetery are recorded in English or in French. However, that is not a barrier to non-French speaking researchers insofar as it is easy to translate by copy/paste into Google Translate

The first recorded activity at St.Luke/St.Luc was the baptism of Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, the wife of John Baxter in 1839. Today the parish covers the south west portion of orth Plantagenet Township, but in the early years it covered North and South Plantagenet, Alfred and Cumberland Townships.

The first Roman Catholic settlers in the area were John Ryan and Moses Shane who came with their families from Wexford, Ireland in 1815 and 1817.

The first parish priest was the Rev. Father Lefaivre who travelled from L'Orignal and the first resident priest was the Rev. Patrick McGoey in 1849. The first chapel was built in Plantagenet Village but in 1853 the chapel was removed by a group of men to Curran, to the site that has never changed and is the site of the present day St.Luke / St.Luc. The first stone church was blessed in 1864 and the present church was built in 1895. In 1939 the parish consisted of about 200 families of which some 50 were of Irish origins.

Contents include: This new (2018) edition includes all updates that the Ontario Genealogical Society added to the book during the years since the cemetery was originally transcribed in 1998 and updated at least once in 2000. The archived master files didn't indicate how many changes were made nor when they were added.

NOTE about print quality:
GlobalGenealogy.com Inc. entered into a publishing agreement with the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society in 2016, to publish current and future books as well as to bring all of their previously published works back into print. We are pleased to make their books available once again under our Global Heritage Press imprint. Each book has been reprinted as it was prepared by the volunteers of the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, without additional corrections or additions, though the Branch often made additions and corrections over the years since a title was originally printed. All additions and revisions by the Branch are included in this edition. Modern technology enabled us reproduce the original work in as good as, or better quality than when originally published. Most of the early titles were created on a typewriter and reproduced by Gestetner and early photocopiers. Many of the masters were digitized from these original paper masters by the Ottawa Branch. The remainder, we scanned from archived paper copies. We've cleaned up the masters as best as was possible without re-keying all of the content. The result is a collection of books that are useful and complete, but of a print quality that reflects the technology of the time in which they were originally published. The earlier titles are clearly readable but not of the same high quality print of later books. The foregoing also affects the thoroughness of search results in digital versions of some early titles. Early editions included fonts that are not recognized by modern digital search tools. We advise readers to always check indexes and alphabetical listings and not to rely solely on the digital search feature.
