The names on these maps are not transcribed, nor will they be included in our project. However, our databases do include transcriptions of names from early Grant/Patent RECORDS (those issued prior to 1826).

No pre-Confederation era maps have been found, or are known to have been published. See the hand-drawn Patent Maps.

Maps at McGill University’s Digital Atlas Project cover the Post-Confederation period (late for the scope of this project). Names of land-owners are transcribed at McGill’s site.
