    Many of Canada's census records from the 1830s & 40s were lost in a fire. Where else can I look for people who escaped slavery?


      I am following two men who escaped from Virginia in 1836 and were last seen in January 1837 in Oswego, NY heading to Canada. So far my efforts to find them in Ontario have not been successful. Other than the census records for Upper Canada, some of which have been lost, where else might I look to find these two men?
