Linda Corupe

Linda Corupe, U.E., has authored over 50 books on genealogy and history over the past 40 years. The descendant of a United Empire Loyalist from the Napanee, Ontario area, her early publications mainly concerned the Quinte area. More recently, however, she has expanded her focus to include records from all areas of Upper Canada. Notable among her books is the series of annotated transcriptions of the records of the Assize Courts of the Province, currently spanning the years 1792 to 1833, as well as the complete records of the First Heir and Devisee Commissions of Upper Canada, 1797 to 1804. Her current project involves transcribing bastardy affidavits from early Ontario. The first 3 volumes, those of the Newcastle District/Northumberland & Durham Counties, of the Johnstown District/Leeds & Grenville Counties and of the Eastern District/Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Counties, have now been completed. Linda earned her B.A. from McMaster University and is a member of the Ontario Genealogical Society, the United Empire Loyalist Association of Canada and the Ontario Historical Society. She is on the Archives of Ontario recommended researchers list, where she loves to spend time immersed in the history of our province.
