The Present

Elaine Cain is trying to get legal title to family land on Simmons Road in North Preston.

She and her father Wylie Cain say the land has been in their family for hundreds of years, but family members never had legal title.

She paid $4000 to have the acre of land surveyed and has had to collect family documents, photos and tax records going back many years to make the case for the land on which she was born.

She put in an application under the Land Title Clarifications Act two years ago. It's the second time she's filed an application and she says she has no idea when she'll hear about whether or not her application is successful.
