KARA is an organization of Volunteers. It is the spirit of giving that powers the work we do.
We focus on discovering our ancestors in this part of Ontario, from the days when it was called Upper Canada to recent times. As one of the earlier settled regions, Peterborough and the Kawartha region offers a wealth of history. It has been home to many, including literary and political leaders, United Empire Loyalists and their descendant families and it of course was the destination of the settlers who came in the 1825 Peter Robinson emigration.
The Kawartha region holds a significant position in the development of our province and as one of the earlier settled regions, offers a wealth of history. It has been home to many, including literary and political leaders, United Empire Loyalist descendant families and the settlers of the 1825 Peter Robinson emigration.
Friendly KARA Volunteer Staff are always available to assist by explaining and helping locate resources; to discuss avenues of current or future research; or provide general background information about different research materials. Whether experienced genealogist or beginner, all are welcomed to the KARA Research Centre’s renowned atmosphere of warmth and helpful assistance.
