Illustrated Historical Atlas of Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Counties, Ontario, 1878
Illustrated Historical Atlas of Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Counties, Ontario, 1878.This Illustrated Historical Atlas is a great resource for researchers trying to locate people in the three important, adjacent counties of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington.
Important because the city of Kingston, the one time seat of government in Canada, lies in the county of Frontenac and this was a major area for imigration for the United Empire Loyalists. The publication date for the atlas is 1878 and while it is silent about the age of the data - and the maps are undated - it probably represents the situation in the period between 1876 and 1878. (The latest date of settlement in the Patrons Directory is 1877 while the "Historical Description mentions events which took place in 1878.) The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
