With so many of our European ancestors settling in Ontario and the recent closing to the public of the Ontario Land Registry Offices, many of us have been struggling to find the land records of our ancestors. Focusing primarily on rural lots, which many of our ancestors farmed, Ken McKinlay will explain how to meet the challenges involved in using the online records.
The first part of the session will show us how to figure out the lot and concession number using census and other records. The second part will show how to look for the property in the abstract books. The last part of the webinar will show how to search for the details of the transactions.
Throughout the webinar, after watching demonstrations of search techniques, participants will have the opportunity to explore the sources on their own, during short breaks, and ask questions on any problems they have encountered.
About the Speaker
Ken McKinlay‘s foray into his family tree research started with three simple family stories that he wanted to confirm or refute. He has now been researching his family tree for over 18 years. He has given talks for several branches of the Ontario Genealogical Society, BIFHSGO, and the Ottawa Public Library. His talks generally focus on methodologies and providing the skills needed to help solve those brick wall problems.
