Lanark County is located in the Ottawa Valley. Surrounding counties include Renfrew County to the north, Carleton County to the East, Frontenac County and Leeds and Grenville United Counties to the west and south.

This Vital Statistics Project consists of transcriptions of baptism, marriage and burial records for early congregations that became members of the United Church of Canada in 1925. The records are held by the United Church Archives (UCA). The transcriptions were done by volunteers from Toronto Branch and Halton-Peel Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS), with this book originally being published by the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society in 2013.

Records have been grouped according to the Fonds [collection] number assigned by the United Church of Canada Archives. These Fonds generally contain the records of early circuits (later called Charges) or churches that merged over the years to become a current United Church today.

Settlement of Lanark County began in 1815 with British military veterans and 'Swiss' mercenaries who served the British army, farmers and other settlers of various vocations. Most of the early settlers were of Scottish, Irish, and English origin, not necessarily in that order. A smaller but important contingent of first settlers were from France, Germany, Poland, and Italy -- most of whom were veterans of mercenary regiments (DeWatteville Regiment) that received land grants from the British army after the War of 1812.

Perth, the county town, was established as a military settlement in 1816, becoming widely known as the "Perth Military Settlement". Other early towns/villages include Carleton Place (originally Morphy's Falls), Almonte (originally informally known as Shepherd's Falls, then Shipman's Mills in 1821, then Ramsayville, then Waterford and finally named Almonte in 1855), Lanark Village, Smiths Falls, Franktown, Pakenham, Rosetta, Clayton.

The original townships in Lanark County were:
  • Bathurst (Now part of Tay Valley)
  • Beckwith (Still exists - 2017)
  • Dalhousie (Now part of Lanark Highlands)
  • Darling (Now part of Lanark Highlands)
  • Drummond (Now part of Drummond/North Elmsley)
  • Lanark (Now part of Lanark Highlands)
  • Lavant (Now part of Lanark Highlands)
  • Montague (Still exists)
  • North Burgess (Now part of Tay Valley)
  • North Elmsley (Now part of Drummond/North Elmsley)
  • North Sherbrooke (Now part of Lanark Highlands)
  • Pakenham (Now part of the Town of Mississippi Mills)
  • Ramsay (Now part of the Town of Mississippi Mills)
  • South Sherbrooke (Now part of Tay Valley)
