No Response from Canadiana.org so here are the Heir & Devisee Commission Film Details

Heir & Devisee Papers re Richard Hainer
Last month I posted an article called Heir & Devisee Commission 1797-1854 on Canadiana.org - Listing Errors and a Workaround 

Canadiana.org erred in their description and their finding aid for this wonderful set of records so I spent several days going through each online microfilm and creating a corrected Finding Aid. As mentioned in that earlier blog post I also noted where each Volume began on each Microfilm.

I have the first set ready for genealogists to use to more easily find the set of records they are interested in. Here is the detailed listing for Microfilm H1133 Volumes 1-6. You can access this online film by using the link provided.

As an aside, I contacted Canadiana.org on August 30 about the errors, offering them my corrected Finding Aid. I've had no response to my email so apparently they are not interested in correcting a serious error on their site.

Whoever manages their Twitter account tweeted me when they saw my blog post saying "someone" would be contacting me to discuss the problem. But that has not happened. So I will continue correcting their errors on their site and publishing the correct details and Finding Aids here on Olive Tree Genealogy blog and on my Olive Tree Genealogy website.
