Beginner's Guide to Ontario Genealogy, The


Fraser Dunford

What's in a name? New France, Quebec, Upper Canada, Canada West – the Province of Ontario has had many names since the seventeenth century. Parts even had names like Rupertsland, Northwest Territories, and Manitoba. Ontario’s genealogical records are as complex as the name and can be daunting to the beginner.

This book is designed to help the beginner. It carries on from the author’s previous book, Beginner’s Guide to Genealogy. Addressing only material relevant to Ontario and using only Ontario sources, this is the basic book to read if you are a beginner interested in Ontario genealogy.

Here’s basic help with finding maps, censuses, religious records, civil registrations, municipal records, land records, newspapers, immigration/emigration records, and wills. The author briefly discusses the Archives of Ontario and Library and Archives Canada and what holdings each might have. Then he points you where to go next.
