What We Send You

The format of the Enfranchisement Orders in Council changed between the 1870s and 1969. The earliest ones were handwritten while the later ones were printed on legal-sized paper and then later on letter-sized paper.


Below are sample photographs of the printed Orders in Council. We will leave the entry for the name you are requesting visible and block out the names of other persons mentioned in the Order in Council where required.

If you have found the name or names of persons you are interested in, please send us an email at and we will send you the photographs that contain the information about those persons. 

You are welcome to use the photographs but the copyright remains with us. If you post the photographs on a website, please credit us by indicating: "Photo from"
