Send Lambton  your  Early Settlers
An Early Settler is anyone who came and settled land in Lambton County from any other location.
The Lambton Branch of OGS has for many years been collecting information about Early Settlers who came before 1862, but we have now changed that date to 1900. We have updated our information pages, and now have them available on our web site, where they can be filled in, then printed and mail 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. It is our hope that changing the date to 1900 will add a considerable amount of information that will be available to researchers.
