What is in the Collection?

This collection includes records from 1879 to 1987.

  • Military Records
  • Voters Lists

This collection was created to establish what lands had been sold to homesteaders and what lands were still available.

Homesteads granted to settlers were 160 acres of land, and required a $10.00 fee for the Letters Patent. Males 18 years or older, or a male or female head of a family, could apply.

Before receiving a title to the land, settlers had to file evidence to the Provincial Land Titles Office that they were British subjects by birth or naturalization. Dominion Land Acts set out provisions and options for lands regarding 'Pre-emption', 'proving' or purchasing a quarter section.

The only records available in this collection at this time are Homestead Files from 1908 to 1910. If your ancestor homesteaded during this time, these records may give information such as children and adults living in the home, or place of birth.
