Now that fall is almost here, are you thinking of kick-starting your family history research? One often overlooked resource for new information is municipal records.
By definition these records are all local and, if you’re lucky, they can provide some really specific details about your ancestors. Assessment Rolls, Collector Rolls, Voter Lists, and Board of Health records are just some of the records to be found. The OGS publication Municipal Records in Ontario: History and Guide describes these records and has appendices which list every municipality in Ontario that could have produced records and tells you where these records may be found.
