Peter Robinson Settlers Survey Responses1823-1825 online

Survey & Responses of George Buck
Olive Tree Genealogy received the following email which is pretty interesting in the world of Canadian genealogy, specifically for early settlers in Ontario

 Some months ago I came across an incredibly valuable set of records in the Archives of Canada -- the responses of 180 heads of families among the settlers who emigrated to Upper Canada in 1823 and 1825. For some time I've thought about how best to bring these records forward -- and decided to invite volunteers to join in a collaborative transcription of these records .
Lorine's note - Olive Tree Genealogy published excerpts from transcripts of the medical journals kept by the surgeons on board the nine transports that brought Robinson's Irish Settlers to the Peterborough area in 1825 at Filling in the Gaps 
The survey responses of these settlers at Peannairi is a unique and exciting find.

Fantastic! I have two sets of Robinson folks - the Lines & Murphy's. Great stuff!

The link no longer works. Are the original documents or transcriptions available online anywhere? Can you provide the source at National Archives? We are trying to find out what happened to the Gordon family after their arrival. We believe they left Emily Township not long after their arrival because the land the were assigned was unsuitable for farming.
