The Land Survey Map is also available in a text-only format

Step 1

Locate the desired lot on the map to the best of your ability. Keep in mind that street names, lot shapes and sizes, and lot numbers have changed over time. It may help to find the lot on Google Maps first, then try to locate it on the Land Survey Map.

  • Please note that not all lot numbers and street names are visible on the map, but there may still be information available. Refer to the Lots Not Visible on Map section for more information.
  • If a lot has not been assigned a colour, there is no corresponding information on the microfilm. This is most likely due to missing information or because the lots were surveyed after the records were created.
Step 2

Once you have located the desired lot and corresponding land surveyor using the colour legend, you can then use the index to find the correct page number(s) in the microfilm.

  • You can request a printed copy of the Land Survey Index from Staff at the Lower Level service desk in the Georgetown Branch.
Step 3

The Land Records books are available on two microfilm reels in the Local History Room. There are three books in total, with Books A and B on Reel One and Book C on Reel Two.

  • The microfilm reels are in the drawers next to the microfilm reader, located in the drawer labelled “Land Records for Halton, Esquesing and Georgetown.”

  • Reel One (Books A and B) is labelled “Land records, Town of Georgetown, Abstract Index to Deeds, Books A &B.”

  • Reel Two (Book C) is labelled “Land Records, Town of Georgetown, Abstract Index to Deeds, Book C.”
  • See staff for assistance. 
Step 4

Using the index to find relevant pages, you can scroll through the microfilm to learn more about the history of the lot.

  • See staff for assistance in printing any relevant pages.
