On Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 10 a.m. Jane MacNamara will speak about Inheritance in Ontario: Estate Files and Beyond.
"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."The Kingston Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society meets in the Wilson Room of Kingston Frontenac Public Library, 130 Johnson St.
