Newly Digitized Microfilms on the Héritage Portal

The following is a list of digitized microfilms that have been recently added to the Héritage Portal website from the Library and Archives Canada (LAC). 

It is a long list of various LAC microfilm, and I have put in bold some of the items that may interest you, as a genealogist. 

Some of these records are difficult to research because they are not indexed, but some records, like the World War I: Veterans claim cards, are in alphabetical order.

The veteran claims are records that give a description of the land that they received, the location, and address of the land, and there is even a remarks section on the card. 

Another one to check is the Edwardsburg Township fonds, 1801 & 1818. 

It contains nominal census reports, and records from Elizabethtown Township, Edwardsburg Township, Johnstown Township and so on, and it is worth reading if you had ancestors who lived in those areas.

Here is the rest of the list –
