Papers & Records Vol.III (1901) Ontario Historical Society


Cat No.:   CA0171-01:

This is a complete reproduction of the papers presented to the Ontario Historical Society in its 3rd. report (1901.) These annual publications are often a gold mine of valuable genealogical and history information but it can be difficult to recognize because the detail tends to be “hidden” by the overall “Papers and Records” volume title. For this reason we also published many of the individual papers presented herein as “Gleanings,” under their more descriptive individual titles.

The contents of this volume do also show some thematic relationships so in addition to the individual Gleanings we are also releasing this complete reproduction.

The following is a list of the titles of the presentations printed in this volume. For further descriptions of those papers noted as being published as Gleanings we suggest you consult our Catalogue’s Gleanings descriptions. For the others the title alone provides an adequate description.
