BOOK - London Ontario's Unrepentant Confederates, the Ku Klux Klan and a RENDITION on WELLINGTON STREET   
By Ron W. Shaw
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2018
Immediately following the American Civil War, a wave of unrepentant Confederate families who refused to take the oath of allegiance to the United States Constitution flowed into Canada between 1865 and 1870. Many of those took up residence across southwestern Ontario, including in the city of London. They were joined by men, soon followed by their families, who were fleeing arrest as American President Ulysses S. Grant moved to destroy the Ku Klux Klan. This book tells the story of London’s refugee Confederates, KKK fugitives and, in particular, of one man for whom even London proved within reach of a U.S. Deputy Marshal. The ‘Bratton Affair’ demonstrated a long-standing sympathy among Londoners, and Canadians generally, for the Confederate cause. It also revealed the young Dominion’s sensitivity in matters of sovereignty and its continued dependence on the muscle of Great Britain in foreign affairs.

BOOK - Haldimand County Marriage and Burial Registers, 1851 - 1865
By Dan Walker, Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2001 (CD 2011)
Haldimand County began separate registers for marriages and burials in 1851. This transcription includes records from the "1851 registers" which cover the period of 1851-1865. At first glance, one might think that the marriages included in this register for the 1858-1865 period are duplicates of those recorded in the "County Marriage Registers" which were used between 1858 and 1869. There are marriages in this earlier "1851 register" which are were not recorded in the "County Marriage Registers 1858-1869" and vice versa. It is important to check both registers.

BOOK - Reminiscences of the Early History of Galt and the Settlement of Dumfries in the Province of Ontario
By James Young
Originally published by Hunter, Rose and Company, Toronto, 1880
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2009

Young's writing and research skills are evident in this captivating local history of the town of Galt and its surrounding neighborhood. The time period covered is from immediately prior to the arrival of European settlers until 1880. Galt, once an independant municipality, was amalgamated with the towns of Hespeller, Preston and the settlement of Blair into a single legal entity under a new name of Cambridge in 1973. Galt covers the largest portion of Cambridge, taking up the southern half of the city. After 130 years, James Young's history is still considered to be an essential resource for everyone who has an interest in the settlement and early development of Galt.

BOOK - Historical Sketches of the County of Elgin
Originally published by The Elgin Historical and Scientific Institute, St. Thomas, Ontario, 1895
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2009

Historical Sketches of the County of Elgin provides the reader with a fact-filled early account of the history of present-day Elgin County and the town of St. Thomas. The authors discuss events beginning with native settlements and conflict, and move forward through the period of French explorers, British invasion and settlement up to 1895, the year that the book was originally published. A significant portion of the text is dedicated to the period when Colonel Thomas Talbot administered much of southwestern Ontario and organized British settlement. Talbot's administration was considered by many to be despotic. However, under his "rule" the area became one of the most prosperous parts of the province. This book is an essential read for everyone with an interest in the history and settlement of Elgin County. ISBN: 978-1-926797-01-4     More information

BOOK - Rockwood: A Mosaic of Memories (Ontario, Canada)
By Deborah Quaile, with original illustrations by Susan Strachan Johnson.
Rockwood is the main urban area in the Township of Guelph/Eramosa in Wellington County, Ontario. A rapidly-growing community of approximately 3,500 people [2006], it is located on Highway #7 between Acton and the City of Guelph. The Eramosa River runs through the centre of town and is the reason for Rockwood's existence - having been the source of power for several mills that were the economic engine that spawned the original settlement. Deborah Quaile has produced a wonderful local history of this Ontario community. The book is filled with interesting accounts of the experiences of Rockwoodites, from pioneer settlement to current times. Those stories are complemented with rare old photos of local people and landmarks and original illustrations by Susan Strachan Johnson.

BOOK - Annals of Puslinch 1950-1967 (Wellington County, Ontario)
By Puslinch Centennial Committee

During Canada's 100th anniversary of Confederation, many community groups compiled and published local histories. The title is deceiving insofar as it leads the reader to believe that the book is restricted to events between 1950 and 1967. In fact, early local and family history is included, stretching back to the settlement of the community.

BOOKS - Diary of James W. Carpenter 1880-1907, Past to Present
By Donald W. Carpenter
Published by author, Corunna, 1991
Diary of James W. Carpenter 1880-1907 is the transcribed diary of J.W. Carpenter who was a resident of Sombra Township which is located in Lambton County in South-Western Ontario who later lived across the river in Marine City, Michigan. The diary covers the years of 1880-1907. This book is an especially helpful find for anyone with family connections to the man, or for those interested in information about the day to day activities of people who lived nearby. Social historians will appreciate the information provided insofar as it provides a detailed look into everyday life in western Ontario and eastern Michigan from the late 1800s and to the early 1900s. Carpenter recorded details of interactions with many people by name. It is of interest that he records earnings for work done and costs for specific consumer items. It is surprising how often people changed the terms of the previously agreed rate of pay after Carpenter finished his day's labour. Carpenter had no hesitation in mentioning these people by name and what payment or goods he ended up with. The books offered here are new and unused.

BOOK - The Silver Chief: Lord Selkirk and the Scottish Pioneers of Belfast, Baldoon and Red River
Concerns: Prince Edward Island, Baldoon (Wallaceburg, Ontario) and Red River [Manitoba]
By L. H. Campey
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2003
Belfast, Prince Edward Island, founded in August 1803, owes its existence to Lord Selkirk. Its bicentennial is a timely reminder of Selkirk’s work in Canada, which extended beyond Belfast to Baldoon (later Wallaceburg) in Ontario, as well as to Red River, the precursor to Winnipeg. Aptly named "The Silver Chief" by the five Indian chiefs with whom he negotiated a land treaty at Red River, the fifth Earl of Selkirk spent an immense fortune in helping Scottish Highlanders relocate themselves in Canada. Selkirk has been well observed through the eyes of the rich and powerful, but his settlers have been neglected. Why did they leave Scotland? Which districts did they come from? Why did they settle in Canada? Why did Selkirk help them? How successful were their settlements? What impact did they have on Canada’s early development? Did Selkirk realize his ambitions for Canada? In answering these questions, Lucille H. Campey presents a new and powerful case for re-assessing the achievements of Selkirk and his settlers. Using a wealth of documentary sources, she reconstructs the sequence of emigration from Scotland to the three areas of Canada where settlements were founded. She shows that emigration took place in a carefully planned and controlled way. She reveals the self-reliance, adaptability and steely determination of the Selkirk settlers in overcoming their many problems and obstacles. They brought their rich traditions of Scottish culture to Canada and, in doing so, helped to secure its distinctively Canadian future. Together, Selkirk and his settlers succeeded against overwhelming odds and altered the course of history. More information

This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2013

A comprehensive source for names of the claimants and their losses during the Rebellion of 1837-38 in Upper Canada including subsequent restitution amounts or rejection of claims in whole or in part. Some years ago we purchased a forty eight page document originally printed in 1849, that lists the individual claimants by their name, the amount of their claim in currency (sums claimed), the amount paid (sums allowed) or denied (rejected altogether) and the District in which the claimant resided. The Johnstown District claims include "Nature of Claim" and "remarks". Those entries shine much light on which side of the conflict that the claimants sympathized with along with details of ownership or personal information. More information

BOOK - The Pioneers of Old Ontario
By W. L. Smith

This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2006 (CD 2010)

In 1897 Smith began a series of trips through rural Ontario with to obtaining first-hand settlement information from its residents. 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. ISBN: 1-897210-90-6 (Hardcover)   More information

By William Canniff
Originally published by Dudley & Burns, Ontario, 1869
This edition by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2008, 2011 (CD 2011)

The final result was this substantial and highly regarded book, which provides an informed insight into the history of the entire province as it was known in 1869 with a focus on the the Bay of Quinte region.

BOOKS - District Marriage Registers and District Vital Records of Upper Canada, 1786-1870
By Dan Walker and Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton
During the early period of settlement in Upper Canada and Canada West (the province of Ontario), all ministers who performed marriages with the exception of Anglican and Roman Catholic ministers were required to send in returns to the Clerk of the Peace for the District. That said, plenty of Anglicans and Catholics were married by nonconformist ministers for reasons explained further on. The majority of returns begin in the 1830s with a few Districts containing earlier marriage returns. The Clerk of the Peace then recorded the returns in a District register kept in the District office. Most of the original District Registers survive and have been reliably transcribed and indexed into a series of books. It is important to keep in mind that the Register is a copy made by the District Clerk. The returns themselves are the closest record to the original parish record that exists. For some Districts the individual original marriage returns from Ministers have also survived and in some instances contain lists of baptisms and burials performed by the minister. Though the 1849 date for conversion to the county system was precise, some clerks continued to add to the District Marriage Registers for decades after the conversion resulting in some District Marriage Register entries being made as late as 1870. Available in printed and digital formats. More Information...

BOOKS - Surrogate Court Index of Ontario, Canada, 1859-1900 ( Wills)- Second Edition
Compiled by June Gibson, Indexed by Elizabeth Hancocks, C. G. & Shannon Hancocks
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton
Wills and the documents that contribute to the process of distributing the estate of an individual can be a wonderful source of information about the deceased, their family and those who survived. The books in the Surrogate Court Index of Ontario, Canada 1859-1900 series are designed to assist researchers in finding death and estate information for those who died in Ontario from the middle to the end of the nineteenth century. Specifically, this index covers Estate Files dated between 1859-1900. The death may have occurred months or even years before the date that the estate was finalized. Many times the estate of the deceased may not have been settled until the death of a spouse. Estate Files are of great interest because of the bounty of detailed information that they contain about the deceased, and about those who survive. The Surrogate Court used the documents in order to disperse the deceased's estate, whether he/she died with (testate) or without (intestate) a Will. Available in printed and digital formats.

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. More information

BOOK - In Duty Bound, Men, Women, and the State in Upper Canada, 1783-1841 [Ontario]
By J. K. Johnson
Published by McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal, 2014
An unprecedented look at Upper Canada's forgotten people and the ways in which their lives were by necessity bound in a mutual relationship of duty and obligation to the Upper Canadian state. This neglected area of Canada's history has been preserved, in part, in the form of personal petitions submitted to the lieutenant-governor and legislature for land, government jobs, pensions, pardons and the lessening of court sentences, for compensation for damages done by, or work done for, the state, and for relief. Using these and other previously unexamined government records, J.K. Johnson illustrates that, popular knowledge aside, Upper Canada was not simply a land of self-sufficient farmers and artisans and that many had to turn to and rely on the state for their livelihoods. The major themes of Upper Canada's history, from war and rebellion to immigration and settlement, are well-documented. This book fleshes out the lives of ordinary people in Upper Canada and clarifies how several branches of government worked for, or against, the interests of the population.

BOOK - William Wye Smith: Recollections of a Nineteenth Century Scottish Canadian
Edited by Scott A. McLean and Michael E. Vance
Many writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries emphasised the virtues of early rural pioneers and life on the land as a general criticism of what they perceived to be the negative, alienating influence of Ontario's rapid urban and industrial expansion. William Wye Smith, a popular nineteenth century Upper Canadian (Ontario) poet, was no exception. This fully annotated version of Smith's unpublished manuscript highlights Smith's unwitting testimony to the social life of the province, his relationship to the construction and maintenance of Scottish and Canadian identity, as well as his position in literary history.

BOOK - Assisting Emigration to Upper Canada: The Petworth Project 1832-1837
By Julie Johnston
Assisting Emigration to Upper Canada examines the way new attitudes and policies towards the English poor in the 1830s affected the British government's approach to emigration and to new immigrants in British colonies. Using a rich collection of contemporary sources, Wendy Cameron and Mary McDougall Maude focus on one group of English immigrants sent to Upper Canada from Sussex and other southern counties with the aid of parishes and landlords. Following the work of the Petworth Emigration Committee over six years, they trace the emigrants sent by the Committee from their place of origin to their first settlement in Upper Canada. Their work demonstrates that new rules for poor relief in England were reflected in Colonial Office instructions for receiving new immigrants in Upper Canada.

BOOK - Narrative of a Voyage to Quebec and the Journey from Thence to New Lanark in Upper Canada
By John McDonald, A Lanark Society Settler, 1821
Originally published by author, Edinburgh, 1823
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2018

John McDonald emigrated from Scotland to Lanark in Upper Canada (Ontario) in the Spring of 1821, during the second year of the assisted emigration scheme known as The Lanark Society Settlers. John McDonald's account provides first person insight into what early settlers encountered during their journey to a better life for themselves and their families. Though tinged with the negativity of his own experience, McDonald breathes life into our understanding of the obstacles that our ancestors overcame. Most of The Lanark Society Settlers stayed, weathered the discomfort of pioneering, and found a way to succeed in their new land.. ISBN 978-1-772400441     More information

BOOK - Across the Waters: Ontario Immigrants' Experiences, 1820-1850
By Frances Hoffman and Ryan Taylor
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 1999
Across the Waters is an assembly of the first-hand written accounts of 150 individual immigrants, skillfully bridged by authors Frances Hoffman and Ryan Taylor, to tell the fascinating story of what it was like to leave a familiar homeland to pioneer in the virgin forests of early Ontario. By allowing the personal writings of the early settlers to guide us through their experiences, we come to better appreciate the process of settlement. By examining the various stages of emigration, such as preparing for the journey, ocean crossings, obtaining and clearing land, building a shelter - then a house, and living in the clearings, we gain a clearer understanding of nineteenth century emigrant experience.
