What’s in a name? Your orphan’s name is a legal land description of its location based on the legal land descriptions based on the Alberta Township Survey (ATS) system.

Easily convert your legal land description to latitude and longitude and instantly find the location of your orphan with this website: http://legallandconverter.com/ You may be required to pay a fee for this service as this is an external website.

Please note: If your orphan is on private or leased property you will need permission from the landowner if you wish to visit your orphan. The Orphan Well Adoption Agency is not responsible for making these connections.
