Simcoe County Archives

My Scottish ancestors emigrated to Canada with Lord Selkirk and eventually settled in Ontario. They are buried in Auld Kirk cemetery (Simcoe County) and I have found some very good resources in these archives. 

Also worth investigating:

Papers relating to the Red River Settlers by Chester Martin (a compilation of original documents)

The Romantic Settlement of Lord Selkirk's Colonists, 1909 by George Bryce

Archives of Ontario:
Upper Canada Sundries (document prepared by D. McLean, Agent of the NorthWest Company)
via Internet Archive: http://data2.archives.ca/pdf/pdf001/p000002176.pdf (a PDF, therefore takes quite a while to load)
