  1. Are there any property purchase records in the period 1846 to 1848 in the Port Stanley, Sparta, or St. Thomas area? I have been unable online to find any records for that area in that time period. Could you give me any guidance in where to look, either online, through the LDS genealogical records, or through your own database? I have been to the Elgin OCS in St. Thomas two years ago, but I was looking for other records, not property records. I live in Tucson, AZ, USA — far away! Thanks so much for any help you can give me
