Missisquoi Historical Society Yearly report for 1965: Century Property Owner's Certificates


This list appeared in the Missisquoi County Historical Society 8th Yearly Report for 1965 here is a transcription of the names.of certificate recipients

                An attempt has been made by the Missisquoi County Historical Society to honour the pioneer families of the county. Those who own property which has been in the continuous possession of their families for at least one hundred years are eligible to receive Century Property Owner Certificates.
                 At the opening of the new museum in July thirty-three certificates were presented by Mr. J. J. Bertrand, M.L.A. for Missisquoi. Since that time fourteen more have been awarded.
                 Mr. Clifford Rhicard and his committee have tried to contact all who might qualify for these awards. This has been done by newspaper publicity and by the sending out of application forms. It is hoped that others who are, or who may become eligible, will contact an official of the Society and ask for an application form.

Those who have already received certificates are listed in the following table.

Resource Guide to Canadian Genealogy

Do you have any Canadian genealogy in your family history? Many people do, especially in North America and the United Kingdom. Being on the same continent, quite a bit of travel and immigration between the United States and Canada, and even Mexico and Canada has taken place over the centuries since European colonization began.
