1869-70 Victoria County and Muskoka District Directory

This 1869-1870 Victoria County and Muskoka District Directory was originally purchased by Thomas Stephenson, my ggrandfather, who undoubtedly used it for business and political purposes. It has certainly been well 'thumbed' through over the past 130 years. I do not know of any other surviving copies. The recently released 'updated ?' version of the Victoria County Atlas purports to have included this Directory, but a look at my original copy will quickly reveal the shortcomings of this claim.

The 1869-70 Victoria County and Muskoka District directory is an extremely valuable resource for locating the exact location of your ancestors, especially those in the townships, where Concession and Lot number are given. Town and village directories usually show street addresses. Examination of these directories often gives valuable clues as to family relationships, where properties are close to each other.

Land registry records for individual properties may be available. Land registry records contain valuable information, particularily arrival/departure dates for your ancestors.
