Farm records can be an insightful tool for understanding your ancestor’s place in the world. Were they wealthy, prosperous farmers or scratch farming to survive? Agricultural census, land records, mortgage books, court records, farm directories, newspapers, personal ledgers and diaries and more, can provide an additional layer of insight into your family tree. Tina’s ancestor, John MacDonald, had his farm sold right under his nose! Luckily it was covered in the local paper. What will you find?
