For this week, I’d like to share with you more specific images of the Ontario Land and Improvement Company’s land record ledger.
Here we have an image of Block 7, an area of the town of Ontario. This page lists signatures, dates of deeds received, and remarks about purchase.
Here is a page from the farm lots section, featuring lists of owners.
Here is another page of the ledger featuring purchase lists for smaller blocks in the town of Ontario.
These purchases, as far as I have analyzed, seem to all have occurred during the 1920s. I don’t know much about the specifics of land development, but in this ledger alone, I have found interesting variety in handwriting, which I think is really cool!
