Illustrated Historical Atlas of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Counties, Ontario
Product No. CA0168
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.)
We have made the text parts of the book computer searchable and have enabled the FastFind search enhancement for your convenience. These atlases have long been recognized as a major resource in Canadian Genealogical research but they are rarely seen restored to their original full color, full double spread, configuration and we are sure you will not only find this atlas a useful but also a rewarding read.
This is a physically large book the pages being about 17” tall by 13” wide so that open a full map can be 17” x 23”. At this size the only practical way to study the maps is to place the book on a table and to stand over the page. Even then it is difficult to access some areas of the page at the close range which is required to read the smaller writing, leading to a significant danger of damaging the page edges by unintended contact. All areas of this digital version can be viewed from a comfortable seated position at any magnification, and the orientation of the page can easily be rotated to the preference of the reader. All in all we believe you will find this digital reproduction both attractive and practical.
