Custodial history

Information and documents have been assembled by Dr. Livio Di Matteo over a period between the late 1980s and late 2010s, from provincial government sources. Transferred to the Archives September 2022.

Scope and content

This collection consists of data on over 12,000 probated decedents in Ontario and Manitoba for 1872 to 1927. The historical probate wealth data was collected for four regional areas: Wentworth County, Ontario (1872-1927), Thunder Bay District, Ontario (1885-1927), Ontario (1892, 1902) and Manitoba (1873-1927). The data is in the form of hard copy survey sheets (paper records) and compiled spreadsheets (electronic records.)
