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. As such, they contain a wealth of detailed information about life on the island in general, and life in Wikwemikong in particular, and therefore are of potential interest to historians.

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.

He found a "warehouse" of information was carried in the memories of men and women - memories that went back to the days of the virgin forest, of log cabins surrounded by blackened stumps in the midst of scanty clearings, of bush trails and corduroy roads over which settlers toiled with their grists to distant mills, of old-time logging bees, and of the circuit riders who carried the Gospel message to those real heroes. This book is the result of that effort.

This series of books are transcriptions of those records. An outstanding resource for locating marriages in early Ontario, during this very difficult research period.

BOOKS - Ontario Photographers Lists, Vol 1 & 2
By Glenn Phillips
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton 2003, 2010
Invaluable guides to help you identify the place and date when a photograph was taken. Many family history researchers have boxes of photographs, but do not know who is depicted in the photo nor when or where it was taken. These books list individual photographers, where they worked and when. That means that if you have a photograph that includes a photographer's stamp or other identification you can easily find out when and where that picture was taken. Oftentimes that will help you to identify who is in the picture. Both volumes are organized alphabetically by municipality. However, a comprehensive index is also included. Historical place names have been kept.

BOOK - Getting From Here To There, Identifying the Origins of Immigrants to Canada Revised and Expanded Edition
By: Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton 2005
One of the more difficult things to do in a family history research project is to identify where your original immigrant ancestor came from. Sometimes we know the country they came from, but not the specific place within that country. In order to find records in the "old-country" it is very helpful to know which town, parish, county etc that the person came from. This book identifies a long list of potential sources in Canada, where you may find that critical piece of information.
