Would anybody know how I would go about researching a Canadian probate, if there was one.


I have Google'd but did not find an answer.

Any idea when and where?

Familysearch does have some

The Family History Library has microfilmed records from the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) (formerly known as the National Archives of Canada (NAC); and earlier known as the Public Archives of Canada (PAC))
and the provincial archives in
Nova Scotia,
New Brunswick,
and Ontario
. It has vital records and probate records from British Columbia, homestead applications from Saskatchewan, land and property and probate records from Newfoundland, and probate records from Manitoba but few records from other Canadian archives. More information can be found at the Canada Archives and Libraries article.

There are a number of addresses and contact emails from the link on that page to the Canadian Archives
