BOOK - Northwest Half-Breed Scrip, 1885
By Gail Morin
Published by Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, 2015

Land scrip refers to a certificate entitling the holder to obtain a certain portion of the public land either by entry or the payment of a portion of the price. This book covers awards made in the future provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and a portion of Manitoba to heads of household and minors who were born there before 1886. Mrs. Morin’s faithful extracts have preserved an enormous amount of genealogical information pertaining to the thousands of qualified applications. For example, in the case of the Northwest Métis, we learn each individual’s place and date of birth, names of parents, source of half-breed descent, occupation, spouse’s name, place and date of marriage, ages of children, and quite a bit about the nature of the individual’s claim.

BOOK - Manitoba Scrip. 2nd Edition [June 1875-Early 1880s]
By Gail Morin
Published by Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, 2015
This volume refers to certificates awarded to Métis (half-Native American, half-European) and original white inhabitants of Manitoba and their children, as of July 15, 1870. (Most of the whites had migrated from French Canada, Scotland, or England.) The purpose of the Scrip policy, which extended over several decades, was to eliminate whatever remaining claims Canadian Native Americans might make on the land. Because of the detailed application process required for the award of scrip, Mrs. Morin’s faithful extracts have preserved an enormous amount of genealogical information pertaining to the thousands of qualified applications. For example, in this volume we learn each applicant’s date and place of birth, husband’s name, and names and race or national origin of parents. It is arranged alphabetically by the surname of the applicant. ISBN 9780806357270     More Information

BOOK - First Métis Families of Quebec, 1622-1748. Volume 1: Fifty-Six Families
By Gail Morin
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 2012
The term Métis originally referred to the offspring produced from the intermarriage of early French fur traders with Canadian Native Americans. Later, there were also Anglo Métis (known as “Countryborn”)--children of Scottish, English, and other European fathers and indigenous mothers. The Métis were also formerly known as half-breeds or mixed-bloods. Today, the French and Anglo Métis cultures have essentially merged into a distinct group with official recognition as one of the three Aboriginal Peoples of Canada. This new work, the first in a purported six-volume series, traces the descendants of the 56 original Métis families for up to three generations. Richly detailed, fully sourced, and indexed, this work must be regarded as the starting point for Métis genealogy.

BOOK - First Métis Families of Quebec, 1622-1748, Volume 2: Jean Nicolet and a Nipissing Woman
By Gail Morin
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 2014
The first Frenchman known to have Métis offspring was Jean Nicolet de Belleborne. He arrived in Quebec in 1618 and was employed as a clerk and trained as an interpreter by the Company of Merchants, the fur-trading monopoly owned by French noblemen. He ran a Hudson Bay Company store and traded with the Lake Nipissing (Ontario) people for several years. His informal or country marriage to a Nipissing woman resulted in the birth in 1628 of a daughter, Madeleine or Euphrosine Nicolet. Jean Nicolet returned to the Company in Quebec in 1633 with Madeleine. Madeleine married Jean Leblanc in 1643 and Elie Dussault dit Lafleur in 1663. Both marriages resulted in generations of descendants in Canada and the United States that continue today. This second volume of the First Métis Families of Quebec documents their descendants up to the 20th century

BOOK - The Residential Schools at Spanish, Ontario: The Flu Epidemic of 1918-1919
Translated by William Lonc S.J.; Edited by Jacques Monet S.J.
Published by The Canadian Institute of Jesuit Studies, Toronto, 2009

More than ninety years ago, around the end of World War One, the terrible epidemic of influenza called "The Spanish Flu" spread over the world. It killed 21 million people, including about 50,000 Canadians. Here as elsewhere, it was especially vicious in attacking the young and the vigorous. Nor, certainly, did it spare the Native Residential Schools set up at Spanish Ontario. Between October 22nd, 1918 and January 19th, 1919, almost everyone on the staff and in the student body was struck down, several of the staff near death for a few days and nineteen boys and girls indeed dying of the virus. This book includes an accurate English translation of the French language records that document the distress caused to the students and staff of the school during the great flu epidemic including records of deaths. Student deaths between 1913 to 1938 from other causes are also documented.

BOOK - Catherine Tekakwitha: Her Life   "Lily of the Mohawks"
By Fr. Peirre Cholenec, S.J. Her Spiritual Advisor and Biographer
Translated to English by William Lonc S.J.
Published by William Lonc, Toronto, 2002
Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, baptised as Catherine Tekakwitha and informally known as Lily of the Mohawks, is a Roman Catholic saint, who was an Algonquin–Mohawk virgin and religious laywoman, commonly known as "Lily of the Mohawks". The story told in this book is based on a xerographic photocopy of a type-written transcript of a document... based on Fr. Cholenec's original Autograph. Thus, the story is told by an eye-witness -- who was her spiritual director -- of the events in her life from the time she arrived at the Jesuit mission just outside of Montreal, known at that time as the Sault Saint-Louis or Saint-Louis Rapids. The English translation is meant to follow the French rather closely, but with an ear to producing an easily readable story in English.

Felix Martin, was closely associated with Catherine's village Caughnawaga in the second half of the nineteenth century and is remembered for his historical writings.

By Shelley Pearen and William Lonc S.J.
Published by William Lonc for the The Canadian Institute of Jesuit Studies, Toronto, 2008 (reprint 2013)
This book is a collection of letters emanating from the Jesuit Holy Cross Mission at Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada, in the mid-1800's. The letters are generally annual reports to the Jesuit General in Rome, and are meant to keep the General informed of the physical and spiritual welfare of the mission.

BOOKS - Letters from the New Canada Mission 1843-1852   [Jesuit missions in early Ontario]
Edited with commentaries and annotations by Lorenzo Cadieux, S. J., 1973 (Part 1), 1982 (Part 2)
Translated by William Lonc, S.J. and George Topp, S.J.
Published by William Lonc for the The Canadian Institute of Jesuit Studies, Toronto, 2001, revised 2004 (Part 1), 2007 (Part 2) (Reprinted 2013)
For many years, several Jesuit historians have been using these authentic documents, and it is now time to share them with other researchers: historians, sociologists, economists, indiologists, folklorists, etc. The university community as well as the public at large will find in these documents a veritable gold-mine of information for their scientific studies because the letters contain precious data from Canada as it was in the 1840's. The letters describe the mores of the society, its economic and material life, the cultural and spiritual values of Canadians at the time of the Union of the two Canadas: Quebec and Ontario. Ontario is the dominant venue for these letters. The authors describe their endeavors in Kingston, Toronto, Chatham, Sandwich (today's Windsor), and then among the Natives of Walpole Island, Manitoulin Island, Sault-SainteMarie, Thunder Bay, etc. The accounts are larded with uncensored episodes, reflection on the Native civilization, and fascinating descriptions, worthy to be included in Canadian anthologies. In short, these letters are documents of choice and contribute to the enrichment of our history.

If you think it's time for a genealogy makeover, or better yet a Genealogy Do-over, this workbook will take you step by step though the process he followed with his own research throughout 2015.

From a phone conference to a week long event, a family reunion is a time to gather and share. According to Wikipedia: "A typical family reunion will assemble grandparents, great-grandparents and up for a meal, some recreation and discussion.

It is also not uncommon for regular family reunions to be sponsored by family organizations or family associations centered on a more distant common ancestor or a commonly shared surname". That said, whether you are planning a large event or a small casual get-together, a successful family reunion requires careful planning and execution. This booklet will help you plan a successful reunion for your family, reducing your stress and resulting in a memorable reunion that your extended family will enjoy and appreciate.

BOOK - Guide to Wolfram|Alpha for Genealogy and Family History Research
By Thomas MacEntee
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2014
Most genealogists and family historians these days are familiar with a variety of search engines used to locate information on the internet. The process is pretty straight forward: you enter your search terms, and you get back a list of links to relevant websites. But what if there were a search engine that allowed queries in the form of a question and, in fact, preferred that format? You could classify the resulting search engine as more of an answer engine that anything else. And what if you could take the concept one step further and have this answer engine calculate information based on set input parameters? Well such a search engine does exist: Wolfram|Alpha. What sets this computational engine apart from other search engines is the ability to pull data from websites outside of Wolfram|Alpha) that are selected for their data reliability and sources.

BOOK - Solving Riddles in 19th Century Photo Albums
By Graham Jaunay
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2011
Many people mistakenly think that the photography process has been around for a very long time. This is of course untrue and indeed the pictures in your heirloom photo album are unlikely to predate the 1860s. Photographs came in many forms in the nineteenth century and this book assists the reader to identify each type, as this is an essential dating indicator. The booklet then addresses in great detail the other characteristics of photographs with examples to assist the reader in dating the item - the mount itself, the material printed on the back of the photograph, the composition of the photograph including the pose of people depicted and the clothes being worn by the people depicted. This booklet also addresses the issues related to preserving your photographs for the enjoyment of future generations. ISBN 9780980874662     More Information

Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2011
Sooner or later, family historians will come across a major obstacle in progressing their research - old handwriting can be difficult to resolve and this booklet is designed to overcome some of these problems. The problem rests on the fact that most of us unknowingly read by identifying whole words by their shape rather than looking at individual letters. When we come across unfamiliar writing, we are forced to look at the individual letters in their context. The unexpected shapes of old letters and a multitude of shortcuts in writing results in considerable difficulties for modern readers, and this booklet provides some strategies to overcome this problem. There are a number of books on this subject, but, apart from the practical advice within, a strength of this publication lies in the number of actual examples to help the researcher identify seemingly meaningless words.

BOOK - Pitfalls in Family History
By Graham Jaunay
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2012
This booklet outlines some of the issues that throw up barriers to family history research. What is a pitfall? Look it up in a dictionary and you will find that it is defined as ... a concealed pit as trap for man or animal, an unsuspected difficulty or danger or an error into which it is easy to fall. Somewhere there may be a family historian who claims never to have encountered a pitfall in their research, but most of us, if we're honest, will admit to being bruised all over by the number of falls we've taken whilst our family trees have been growing. By reading this booklet you will be more aware of many of the pitfalls waiting to entrap you! ISBN 9781921956102     More Information
