About Us

Joanna Crandell

A graduate of Huron College, University of Western Ontario, Joanna has worked in a number of academic and government libraries in Ontario and Quebec. It was during her service at Library and Archives Canada that she discovered the lists of approved immigrants in the Orders in Council of the Privy Council.  After leaving Library and Archives Canada, Joanna started to photograph the lists and convinced her sister, Lin, to index them.

Elinor Sullivan

Elinor Sullivan (known as Lin to family and friends) graduated as a Librarian from the University of Western Ontario. By the end of her professional career she was involved in library automation initiatives and the creation of large databases. Having just enough OCD to be useful, she also published a bibliography of Simcoe County, as well as indices to several local history publications, between projects. Lin now lives in Barrie but, thanks to electronic media, has been able to help her sister, Joanna, in creating her websites. When not indexing for Joanna, Lin can be seen in the background of Toronto TV and film productions—but you have to look carefully.
