GUIDE - Ontario Municipal Records - A Beginner's Guide
By Fraser Dunford
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Carleton Place, 2023
Originally published by Ontario Genealogical Society, 2015
Few genealogists appreciate the goldmine that is municipal records. Municipalities provided an astonishing variety of records, all of them local (by definition!) and many just loaded with names of people living in that locality. This source is not well-known because: (a) you must know the municipality your ancestor was in, (b) you have to know where that municipality’s records are now, and (c) the records will almost certainly be completely, totally, absolutely un-indexed. This guidebook is an introduction to the long list of municipal records that are helpful to family history researchers. It provides a brief history of municiple records that have been collected in Ontario and a short description of records that researchers can find. The author included maps that clearly show district, county and regional municipality boundary changes from 1788 to 1979.     More information
