Genealogy Lookup Computerized Land Record Index (aka Ontario Land Record Index)
|[You are here - Olive Tree Genealogy Marketplace & Store]||
The Computerized Land Record Index (aka Ontario Land Record Index) summarizes land grants of Crown Land, sales of land from Canada Company sales or leases and from Peter Robinson settlers' grants. If your ancestor settled anywhere in Ontario and he was the first time
owner of Crown Land, he should be on these lists.
The information from the lists includes date of purchase, type of purchase,
residence of purchaser, land location (lot, concession, township), type of
purchase (very important to knowing whether or not there are more
records available!), archival reference (where full record can be found) and often more info such as date of land ticket, or date of petition for land, etc.
If you are unable to obtain the records yourself, I offer a lookup
service for the CLRI. For the small fee I will check for your ancestor's name
(up to 5 instances per individual) from those records. I also include a
written explanation of the codes, how you can use the information found in the CLRI to search further in other records. and helpful addresses for further research.
