Notice for Hamilton Branch Meeting

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Date: Thursday, April 17, 2014

Time: 7 pm

Location: Lincoln Alexander Elementary School, 50 Ravenbury Drive, Hamilton.

Speaker: Jane E. MacNamara

Topic: “Inheritance in Ontario: Estate Files and Beyond”

Brief Overview: Ontario researchers looking for records of inheritance usually stop once they’ve found the estate file. True, it is the richest single source, but the court register, minutes, and other documents that track the estate’s progress through the court can add valuable family history clues and help tell the whole story. The presentation will review how to find an estate file and how it can lead to other sources both inside and outside the court system.
