Upper Canada Land Petitions update

Library and Archives Canada has announced a major update to its online database "Upper Canada Land Petitions (1763–1865)."

* All suggestions for corrections received from users since the original launch in September 2010 have been integrated into the database
* More than 5,000 references to land petitions occurring in the Upper Canada Sundries have been added to the database

Through this updated online database, researchers can access more than 82,000 references to petitions for grants or leases of land created by individuals who lived in present-day Ontario between 1763 and 1865
