Thank you very much for the message about our common family tree.
I look forward to sharing more information about the early settlers to central Ontario.
I was able to get access to the microfilms of the early 1851 Census of Albion Township – Peel County, Ontario. However, as in anything worthwhile….it created more questions than it provided in answers.
Here’s a brief run down of the information that I collected.
