A THREE-WEEK COURSE ON THURSDAYS: FEBRUARY 1, 8 AND 15.

An enormous amount of information about the people and families who lived in early Ontario survives in land records. The records of the Crown Lands Department are extensive, complicated and sometimes a little mysterious, but extremely rich in unique and intriguing historical detail.

This three-session course, designed for both family and local historians, will provide an introduction to the land granting process and the main types of Crown Lands records. You’ll work in small groups on carefully chosen case histories to learn how to use the various finding aids and collections at the Archives of Ontario to document a person’s acquisition of land in Upper Canada.

Space is limited. Register early.
