The TLA BBQ offers lunch with friends, plus an opportunity to research the history of your island. What could be better than that on a beautiful Saturday in Temagami!
The TLA “Archives Committee” has located the “Timagami Islands” (doomsday) book – the Ministry of Natural Resouces record of property ownership on Lake Temagami. This book allows you to look up your island number, and trace the original lease and the years in which your property changed hands.
The custody of this public record was placed in the hands of the TLA in the 1980s (and at one time the book was on display at the TLA building). Members were fascinated with the information they were able to learn.
The has TLA has safely stored this book since that time and will have it available on Saturday so that members can view and take photos of their island information. It will then be returned to safe storage.
