Don McKenzie R.I.P.

The Reverend Donald Alexander McKenzie passed away peacefully at the Queensway-Carleton Hospital on 24 February 2024 in his 91st year.

Don was ordained in the United Church of Canada in the 1950s and moved to Ottawa in 1975.  On retiring from the ministry Don worked as a consulting genealogical researcher especially interested in church and congregational histories.

The Ottawa Public Library catalogue lists 17 books he authored in its reference collections at the Main and Centepointe branches, many still available through Global Genealogy.

For years Don was a LAC regular at 395 Wellington Street, sometimes communting by bicycle, to abstract data in the microfilm room, and joining groups of fellow resarchers for lunch-time conversation in the firth floor cafeteria.
