Microfilm Interloan Service  

Understanding the Archival Reference Code in the Ontario Land Record Index


Each entry in the Ontario Land Record Index includes a reference to the original record from which the reference was taken. This record can be viewed on self-service microfilm.

The Archival Reference Code is found on the far right of each entry in the Ontario Land Record Index. The first column in the 'ARCHIVAL REF' is labelled 'RG', the second column 'SER'. Use the table below and proceed to the appropriate section of this guide.

PLEASE NOTE THAT MOST, BUT NOT ALL, MICROFILM REELS ARE AVAILABLE FOR INTER-INSTITUTIONAL LOAN. PLEASE CONSULT THE ARCHIVES OF ONTARIO’S ONLINE MICROFILM INTERLOAN CATALOGUE FOR FURTHER INFORMATION.
