UPPER CANADA Mailing List

Welcome to the web page for the UPPER-CANADA mailing list! If your ancestors settled in what is now Ontario before 1867 then this list is for you.

Prior to December 26, 1791 present day Ontario was known as the Western part of the Montreal District of the Colony of Quebec. In 1791 the colony of Quebec was divided into the two provinces of Upper and Lower Canada. Upper Canada (now Ontario) was all that land lying west of the Ottawa River, while Lower Canada (now Quebec) was all the land lying east.

In 1842 Upper and Lower Canada united to form the Province of Canada. Upper Canada (present-day Ontario) became known as Canada West while Lower Canada (present day Quebec) became known as Canada East. In 1867 Upper Canada, or Canada West was given the name of the province of Ontario. It was one of four original provinces at the time of Canadian Confederation on July 1, 1867.

The UPPER CANADA Mail List concerns itself with settlement before 1867. Suitable topics include genealogy and history of the times.

If you have questions please contact the listowner, Lorine McGinnis Schulze

Tips for using a Mail List

Do's & Dont's

DO

  • Use a meaningful subject line such as "John Smith 1840 Bertie Township" rather than a vague subject line such as "My list of ancestors"
  • Do STAY ON TOPIC! Make sure your query is about an ancestor who settled in Upper Canada (Ontario) before 1867
  • Do include dates and locations with your query. The more information you provide, the more chance other subscribers will be able to assist you.
  • Be polite to other subscribers. Flames (personal attacks on others) will not be tolerated. Threats or intimidation will result in a permanent ban from the list

DON'T

  • Do not forward spam, chain letters, virus warnings or hoaxes to the list. Chain letters, virus warnings and hoaxes clog the server. Anyone spamming will be immediately banned.
  • Do not get involved in any public disputes or flame wars. Do not take matters into your own hands if you think someone has been abusive. Report the matter to the listowner if you feel you must but rest assured that I read EVERY post sent and I will deal with inappropriate posts privately.
  • Do not send attachments. Many of our subscribers are using software that cannot read attachments.
  • Don't start a meaningless ROLL CALL (a list of surnames with no details) on the list.

INAPPROPRIATE OR INFLAMMATORY POSTS

The list guidelines are few. They don't require much from each subscriber other than common courtesy and common sense.

Those who choose to ignore guidelines will be encouraged (privately) to participate on the list in a positive way --- and within the guidelines. That will be Warning # 1

Warning # 2 (if required) results in a 2 week suspension.

Suspended subscribers are *always* welcome back provided they can follow the guidelines.

Permanent suspension occurs after 2 warnings. Warnings #1 and #2 may be skipped and a permanent suspension enforced

Anyone fowarding email from a suspended subscriber may be removed from the list without warning.

If a suspended subscriber attempts to post to the list under a false email or asks another person to forward a message from them, they will not be welcome on the Upper Canada list.

Good luck in your quest, and have fun on the list!
