Send Lambton  your  Early Settlers

An Early Settler is anyone who came and settled the land in Lambton County from any other location.

For many years, the Lambton Branch of OGS has been collecting information about Early Settlers who came before 1862, but we have now changed that date to 1920. We have updated our information pages, and now have them available on our website, where they can be filled in, printed and mailed or emailed to our branch. The information will then be placed into a book, indexed, and made available in our library at the Lambton Room and at the LDS Family History Centre. We hope that changing the date to 1920 will add considerable information available to researchers.
