My name is Michael Ross Murphy, and I'll be your host for your visit to this site. Please feel free to contact me for more specific information about these families or any help that I or other family members can provide. My particular interests are the early histories of Bytown, Nepean Township, the townships of west Quebec and the Upper Ottawa Valley.

The information offered here focusses on those of our pioneering ancestors we have been able to trace as well as the first few generations of their descendants in Canada and the USA. We hope that this information can help other families in their research as others have generously assisted us.
