Inheritance in Ontario: Estate Files and Beyond

Speaker: Jane MacNamara

Ontario researchers looking for records of inheritance usually stop once they’ve found the estate file. True, it is the richest single source, but the court register, minutes, and other documents that track the estate’s progress through the court can add valuable family history clues and help tell the whole story. The presentation will review how to find an estate file and how it can lead to other sources both inside and outside the court system.

Finding Land Petitions Online (Rescheduled from March 14)

Speaker: Ruth Burkholder

We all know the 'old way' of going to the library or archives and looking through microfilm to find the petitions our earliest ancestors submitted to the Upper Canadian Government for their land. Then Library and Archives Canada (LAC) made it possible to find them from the comfort of our own home! This presentation will show you how to find the petitions on the LAC website
