Cat No.: CA0048:
Here's a treat - instant family history! The index of this book indicates over 1000 entries all of whom are, "Prominent & Representative Citizens and many of the Early Settled Families," to quote the book's title page. We estimate over 18,000 people are identified in this book. You will find a list of the indexed names below.
This book was published in 1906 by J. H. Beers and Company, which is the same company that was responsible for the famous County Historical Atlases so popular with family historians today. In all probability then this book contains entries for those families who were willing to pay to appear in it, similar to how the entries were chosen to be made in the County Atlases.
How much better value than the Atlases this book is though. Not just a single entry of the landowner's name, but a complete family history covering at least three generations, including details of spouses and their families. Many of the entries are accompanied with a good photographic portrait of the primary subject, often titled with their signature. What a prize for your family history!
There is one significant difference between this and the County Historical Atlases though. As far as I can tell these Biographical Records were only produced for the counties of Essex, Kent, York and Lambton.
This is a large book being 10 1/2 inches by 8 inches and containing 840 pages. Our reproduction is fully text searchable in Adobe Reader® or any similar PDF file reader. This means you will not need the very expensive "Complete Index" to the book which has been published separately.
As a bonus one of the book's previous owners - apparently a member of the David M. Johnston family - has pasted newspaper clippings relating to significant events in their family's history since the book was published.
