Inheritance in Ontario - Wills and Other Records for Family Historians by Jane E. MacNamara
Jane E. MacNamara
Inheritance in Ontario: Wills and Other Records for Family Historians
Whether your ancestor left hundreds of acres of land, money or a few modest belongings, the records created when those legacies were distributed can provide valuable clues to family connections, relationships, and just how your ancestors lived.
Inheritance in Ontario will help you determine whether your relative's will was proved in the Court of Probate, surrogate courts, or another court, and navigate the finding aids to locate surviving estate files and other complementary records at the Archives of Ontario, local courthouse or archives, or through FamilySearch.org. Not every Ontario estate was handled by a court, however, and land records, newspapers, and manuscript collections can also help you discover "who got what."
Jane E. MacNamara is a long-time member of the Ontario Genealogical Society. She teaches and speaks about family history to groups throughout Ontario and is the organizer of the Genealogy Summer Camp, a program attracting out-of-town researchers to Toronto for a week of hands-on research. Jane lives in Toronto and encourages readers to visit her website, wherethestorytakesme.ca.
