New Databases from Library and Archives Canada

Posted by admin on Dec 3, 2010

Canadian Families: Library and Archives Canada holds a small collection of church records, some of which are indexed by name. To provide better access to those indexes, the information they contain has been entered in a database that will expand slowly over the next few years.

Upper Canada Land Board (1765-1804): In 1789, what is now the Province of Ontario was part of Quebec. It was divided into four districts: Hesse, Luneburg, Mecklenburg and Nassau. The Land Boards were created in 1789 to oversee land matters and facilitate settlement in the four districts. This research tool includes more than 16,400 references to the Upper Canada Land Board records.
