Finding Them on the Ground in Ontario

One of the challenges we face when trying to pinpoint where our rural Ontario ancestors lived is finding records with information such as the township, concession and lot. Knowing this information is the starting place for finding land instruments such as deeds and even wills. In this presentation Ken McKinlay will show us how to find that information using census records, directories, voters’ lists, and other publically available records.

Join us on Monday, April 11 2022 at 7PM EDT
