In addition to the above list, the reference contains early 19th Century English parish profiles and maps. Also included are many maps to assist the researcher in pinpointing the location of the settler's Lacolle properties based on an enumeration which was completed around 1860.

This list would be considerably smaller were it not for the generosity of the many family historians who have shared copies of their precious old photos, letters or documents. If you have benefited from this pool please consider donating a black and white copy of any 19th Century item relating to the settlers or their families such as those listed above. As well, any genealogical data or insight of any kind relating to the settlers or Lacolle history is welcome.

In time this reference will be housed in the Hemmingford, Quebec Historical Archives for the mutual benefit of the archives and local researchers.

NOTE: Additional documentation not selected for use in the reference may be available for some families.
