Remembering J. Brian Gilchrist

J. Brian Gilchrist, one of Canada’s most knowledgeable genealogists, author, archivist and heritage advocate passed away on May 1st, 2014 in Brampton. For many years Brian served as the Reference Archivist at the Region of Peel Archives (PAMA). He also served as an expert witness in Ontario on matters of genealogy, inheritance and cemetery issues, and was a frequent participant on television and radio genealogical programs.

Heritage Mississauga, its staff and Board of Directors, extend our condolences to Brian’s family, friends, and colleagues. He will be deeply missed and fondly remembered for his humour and wit. He was a friend, respected colleague, renowned genealogist, knowledgeable and passionate historian, dedicated researcher, sought-after and entertaining speaker, skilled archivist, mentor and friend to many, and a true heritage champion. In particular, our thoughts and best wishes go to our friends and colleagues at the Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) in Brampton, where Brian worked as the Reference Archivist since 2003.

Brian was a founding member of the Halton-Peel Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, as well as several other branches. He was a member of many notable heritage and genealogical organizations, as well as a charter member of the Friends of the Archives of Ontario. Brian was also a strong supporter of the work of Heritage Mississauga.

A recipient of many heritage awards, Brian received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award in 2013.

He will be missed.
