As part of the pre-conference activities at the OGS Conference 2010, I spent the day at the Archives of Ontario.
Negative results were the outcome for most of my Ryckman research there. Albert Ryckman (1766-1850) did not have a will. His son, John Ryckman, also died without a will.
The Surrogate Court records for Middlesex County, Ontario from 1840-1846 were destroyed in a fire in the late 19th century. Of course, these would be the records I needed for Albert's son, William.
The good news is that I did get a few land records. Once I have the change to go through them, I will share the findings here.
