Petitions For Niagara Pioneers

The Niagara Settlers updated Canadian land petitions as recently as June 21, 2012.  The petitions are also online at the Library and Archives Canada, but this website's transcriptions are an excellent resource for those researching the Niagara peninsula.

A portion of an entry at the Niagara Settlers site:

McMichael, Edward

Certificate of Edward McMichael dated at Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake) on 15 Nov 1792 attached to the Upper Canada Land Petition of Jacob Beam
“I hereby certify that Jacob Beam formerly an Inhabitant of Sussex County in the Province of New Jersey...[Signed] Edwd McMichael. [Upper Canada Land Petitions NAC “B” Bundle 1, Petition Number 92b]

Mr. Mutrie's (of Niagara Settlers) website here and e-mail here.

Here's my example of working with Upper Canada Land Petitions.
