BOOK - Tracing Your Trade and Craftsman Ancestors, A Guide for Family and Local Historians    [England]
By Adele Emm
Published by Pen and Sword, Barnsley, 2015
Almost all of us have a tradesman or craftsman – a butcher, baker or candlestick maker – somewhere in our ancestry, and Adèle Emm's handbook is the perfect guide to finding out about them – about their lives, their work and the world they lived in. She introduces the many trades and crafts, looks at their practices and long traditions, and identifies and explains the many sources you can go to in order to discover more about them and their families. Chapters cover the guilds, the merchants, shopkeepers, builders, smiths and metalworkers, cordwainers and shoemakers, tailors and dressmakers, coopers, wheelwrights and carriage-makers, and a long list of other trades and crafts. The training and apprenticeships of individuals who worked in these trades and crafts are described, as are their skills and working conditions and the genealogical resources that preserve their history and give an insight into their lives. A chapter covers the general sources that researchers can turn to – the National Archives, the census, newspapers, wills, and websites – and gives advice on how to use them. Adèle Emm's introduction will be fascinating reading for anyone who is researching the social or family history of trades and crafts. ISBN 9781473823624     More Information

By Lesle Berry
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2010
Printed and bound in Canada by Inc., Milton, 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. The older attendees are generally grandparents, parents, siblings or first cousins while the youngest could be second, third or fourth cousins. 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.

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 - A Short Service History and Master Roll of James Rogers' 2nd Battalion, King's Rangers
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2015
After more than thirty years of studying the loyalist regiments that served in Quebec during the American Revolution, author Gavin k. Watt concluded that Major James Rogers’ 2nd battalion, King’s Rangers was sadly overlooked and required additional attention. There are two main sections to this book. First is a brief service history of the 2nd battalion from its creation in 1779 until disbandment in 1783. Second – by consulting original and secondary sources, Watt prepared a Master Roll of three hundred and fifty-eight men listing alternate spellings of surnames and given names, rank, enlistment date, company, service details, age, height, place of origin, trade, wife and family, and place of settlement. Of course, not all of these details could be found for every man, but the roll is pleasingly complete. In 1784, Rogers led a party of disbanded King's Rangers and their families to the Third Township of Cataraqui, later known as the Township of Fredericksburgh, in Lennox County, Ontario, where they were granted land.

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

BOOK - Cracking the Code of Old Handwriting
By Graham Jaunay
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

BOOK - DNA for Genealogists
By K. Farmer
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2012
DNA testing will not replace the more familiar genealogical research techniques of gathering oral and documentary evidence and compiling family trees. Instead it offers entirely new research tools - more information to augment the documents and oral histories - as well as a way of testing family trees, to see if conclusions drawn are confirmed by this new evidence. This book shows you how you can use DNA to harness this exciting new range of genealogical tools. The amount of scientific jargon associated with genetics can be intimidating. This publication provides a contextual understanding of DNA suitable for genealogists and discusses the currently available tests that are likely to be of interest to family historians, especially those wanting to prove (or disprove) compiled family trees, the connect 'new' relatives by means of inherited genetic material and to draw conclusions about where we fit into the greater human family.

BOOK - London and Middlesex Family History Resources Online
By Alan Stewart
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2013
London is often called a county in itself. In 1901, as many people lived in the UK's capital city (4.5 million in the Administrative County of London) as in either Scotland or Ireland. The even larger Metropolitan Police District contains two million more (as many as the population of Wales). This concise guide explains what is meant by 'London' at different times, from its origins in the Roman Empire 2000 years ago, through the growth of the 'City' until Greater London's almost complete absorption of the county of Middlesex in the 20th century. Most of the main London records are online, and this guide covers internet access to civil registration (births, marriage and deaths) from 1837, the 1841-1911 census returns, and parish registers (baptisms, marriages and burials) from 1538. In addition, it looks at websites for non-conformist registers, gravestone inscriptions, armed forces' records, wills, criminal records, newspapers, local histories, directories and gazetteers. London's family history societies and the city's major archives are also covered, as are many London-specific websites. ISBN 9781921956324    More Information

This edition published by Global Genealogy, Milton, 2014

Records of births, marriages and deaths provide a fantastic starting point for identifying our ancestors' names and where they lived, but in terms of trying to understand how those ancestors once lived there is no better resource to plunder than a good newspaper. Over the last two centuries in particular newspapers have recorded the events that have shaped our forebears' lives, and in many cases noted anecdotes, notices and advertisements directly concerning them and their local communities. In this Unlock the Past guide, family historian Chris Paton reviews the availability of newspapers from across the British Isles, describing how to find those that have been digitised and made available online, and explaining how to locate considerably more that have not within the various libraries and archives across Britain and Ireland.

By Chris Paton
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2015

But as Northern Irish born family historian Chris Paton demonstrates, the glass is most definitely half full rather than half empty when it comes to research in the Emerald Isle.

BOOK - Down and Out in Scotland: Researching Ancestral Crisis   
By Chris Paton
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2015
In this latest Unlock the Past guide, genealogist Chris Paton goes in search of the records of ancestral hardship in Scotland, to allow us to truly understand the situations that our ancestors had to endure and overcome across the generations, to help us become the people who we are today. There were many battles that our forebears fought for and against in Scotland, both on a personal level and as a part of the society within which they lived. There were the laws of the local parish church and the punishments awaiting those who breached kirk discipline; the struggles to avoid poverty and the stigma of being a debtor; the darkest moments of the soul, from mental health issues and illness, to murder and suicide; and the dramatic moments of rebellion, when our forebears drew a line in the sand against a perceived tyranny or democratic deficit. Illness, death, bigamy, abandonment, accidents, eviction, ethnic cleansing – a dramatic range of challenges across a lifetime, and at times, outright tragedy.

BOOK - Those Splendid Girls, The Heroic Service of Prince Edward Island Nurses in the Great War
By Katherine Dewar
Published by University of Prince Edward Island, Island Studies Press, 2014
In their day, the many Island women who served as nurses in WWI didn't see themselves as heroic. But 100 years later, and knowing better the horrors they endured in that war, this book salutes the courage of all Canadian nurses who served and redresses a century-old wrong: the absence in the historical narratives of Prince Edward Island -- and of Canada -- of the contribution of nurses to the First World War. At war's end, many Island nurses were unwilling to swap their wartime autonomy and authority for housework or poorly paid nursing positions on P.E.I.; instead they took up senior positions in nursing schools and in hospital administration, most often in the "Boston States" and in California, and through these, they achieved lasting contributions to the profession of nursing in North America in the 20th century.

BOOK - Marriage Law for Genealogists - The Definitive Guide [England and Wales]
By Rebecca Probert
Published by Takeaway Publishing, Kenilworth UK, 2012 [2014 printing]
The indispensable guide for all family historians tracing the marriages of their English and Welsh ancestors between 1600 and the twentieth century is back in print! Based upon years of painstaking primary research, including new studies of thousands of couples, this book explains clearly and concisely why, how, when and where people in past centuries married. Family historians just starting out will find advice on where ‘missing’ marriages are most likely to be found, while those who are already well advanced in tracing their family tree will be able to interpret their discoveries to better understand their ancestors’ motivations. How, for example, should we interpret our ancestors’ decisions to marry in a particular form or place, or at a particular time? Did their choices make them exceptional or normal for their day? Might their marriages have been bigamous, clandestine, or void? Or might they have conscientiously followed the rules set down by Church and State? Professor Rebecca Probert explains the mistakes and confusion found in most genealogical guides, and thoroughly rewrites how family historians should understand their ancestors’ lives in this most personal and universal of areas.

BOOK - Derry-Londonderry: Gateway to a New World. The Story of Emigration from the Foyle by Sail and Steam
By Brian Mitchell
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 2014
Anyone who has an ancestor known to have sailed from Derry will appreciate having a copy of this book. This book, or booklet, by genealogist and Irish emigration expert Brian Mitchell recounts the history of departures from the port of Derry-Londonderry from the late 17th century to the year 1939, when the last transatlantic steamer sailed from the port. The emigration trade established Derry as one of the chief Irish ports for the transatlantic trade in the 18th century. For example, in 1771 the American colonies took more linen cloth and provisions from Derry than Britain did, and thirty percent of Ulster-Scots, around 75,000 people, emigrated through Derry to North America prior to 1776. By the 1850s two local companies, J. & J. Cooke and William McCorkell & Co., dominated transatlantic trade from Derry, building up sizeable shipping fleets. ISBN 978-0806356-91-4    More information

BOOK - The Great War, A Guide to the Service Records of All the World's Fighting Men and Volunteers [All participating countries]
By Christina K. Schaefer
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 1998-2006
World War I has passed from living memory into the history books, receding far enough into the distance to provide a genealogical challenge. In order to reconstruct the lives and locate the records of those who served, fought, volunteered, or were conscripted, we must rely on a vast but relatively unknown body of resources. Counting all combatants, the number of men who served in the Great War runs into the millions; needless to say, finding records on them in the two dozen countries that participated in the war is a daunting and laborious task--now made infinitely simpler with the publication of this magnificent guide to WWI service records. The only book of its kind, this ambitious effort to catalogue service records and related sources is international in scope, covering the soldiers of all countries participating in the war, from Britain, Germany, and France, to Russia, Canada, and the U.S.; and from India, Australia, and Japan, to South Africa and Brazil! This is a key to a motherlode of genealogical data and should grow in value as our need for WWI-era information increases. Right now it represents a whole new path in genealogical research, with fresh possibilities and discoveries at every turn. ISBN 978-0806315-54-6    More information

BOOK - Ignored but Not Forgotten, Canada's English Immigrants
By Lucille H. Campey
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2014 (Sept)
Ignored but Not Forgotten is a compelling and moving account of one of Canada’s foremost immigrant groups: the story of the great migration of English people to Canada that peaked during the early twentieth century. Based on wide-ranging documentary and statistical sources from both countries, it sets out the various events that propelled this immigration saga, which begins in the seventeenth century with the influx of English people to Atlantic Canada, moves on a century later to Ontario and Quebec, and continues into the late nineteenth century with the arrival of the English in the golden West. The great stream of English people who came to the Prairies and British Columbia in search of land and job opportunities represents one of the most iconic periods of Canada's pioneering history. Widely ignored in the past as an immigrant group, the English are now being given the attention they deserve. The author reveals their outstanding contribution to Canada’s settlement and subsequent development and challenges the assumption that English Canadians were a privileged elite. In fact, most came from humble backgrounds. This is essential reading for genealogists and general readers wishing to appreciate why the English immigrated to Canada and the enormity of their achievements..

BOOK - Marjorie Too Afraid to Cry, A Home Child Experience
By Patricia Skidmore
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2013
Marjorie Arnison was one of the thousands of children removed from their families, communities, and country and placed in a British colony or commonwealth to provide "white stock" and cheap labour. In Marjorie's case, she was sent to Prince of Wales Fairbridge Farm School, just north of Victoria, British Columbia, in 1937. As a child, Patricia was angered that her mother wouldn't talk about the past. It took many years to discover why – it wasn't because she was keeping a dark secret, but because she had "lost" her childhood. For 10-year-old Marjorie, forgetting her past, her family, and England was the only survival tool she had at her disposal to enable her to face her frightening and uncertain future. This is Marjorie's account as told by her daughter. It is a story of fear, loss, courage, survival, and finding one's way home. ISBN 9781459703391     More information

NOVEL - Belonging [British Home Children]
By Sandra Joyce
Published by Welldone Publishing, Toronto, 2014 (Sept 28)
We seldom include a novel in our catalog but have made an exception with this book because of it's careful attention to historic detail. Belonging, the sequel to The Street Arab is the continuation of the story of Robbie, the former British Home Child as he joins the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corp and is sent overseas to fight in the Second World War, followed later by Annie who returns to England as a nurse. The story of their off-again on-again relationship is overshadowed by the intense fighting in Algeria and Italy and the bombing of London. The excitement, fear and battles of the War are recaptured by meticulous research and quick-paced action. The book finishes in Canada with Robbie as an old man with two generations of descendants to bear witness to his long journey from Scotland to Canada as a British Home Child and then proud Canadian veteran. Those with an interest in the 18th and early 19th century relocation of orphaned and poor British children to Canada will benefit from reading this book. ISBN 978-0-9737330-6-8     More information

By James G. Leyburn
Originally published by the University of North Carolina Press, 1962
This edition published by University of North Carolina Press, 1989 [reprinted recently]

Dispelling much of what he terms the 'mythology' of the Scotch-Irish, James Leyburn provides an absorbing account of their heritage. He discusses their life in Scotland, when the essentials of their character and culture were shaped; their removal to Northern Ireland and the action of their residence in that region upon their outlook on life; and their successive migrations to America, where they settled especially in the back-country of Pennsylvania, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, and then after the Revolutionary War were in the van of pioneers to the west.

BOOK - WWI Nursing Sisters of Old Durham County
By By Sherrell Leetooze
Published by Lynn Michael-John Associates, Bowmanville, 2014
The writing of WWl Nursing Sisters of Old Durham County was inspired by the centennial of the beginning of the First World War which began in August, 1914. No one wants to think about war, but it is inevitable if we are to keep the memory of those who served, and to honour their commitment to a peaceful future. So, author Sher Leetooze looked around for a suitable portion of the war experience to write about that touched the lives of the people of Old Durham County in central Ontario. Sher chose the women. It wasn't just nursing sisters who served during the conflict. Women at home also served by raising funds that went directly to soldiers overseas, perhaps not in their pockets, but these funds purchased a few comforts of home for them while they served in the tranches or recuperated in hospital. The women also knit good warm socks for the soldiers too, and baked them cookies and sent them cigarettes and chocolates. This book focuses on the stories of the thirty two nurses from Durham County who served thier country during the First World War.

BOOK - Patriotes, Reformers, Rebels and Raiders, Tracing your ancestors during the 'troublous' times in Upper and Lower Canada 1820-1851
By Kenneth G. Cox
Published by Kenneth G. Cox, Toronto 2014
This detailed book identifies and explains Rebellion of 1837-38 historical records, including transcribed lists of many of the players in this often ignored chapter of Canada's history. In 1840 Jean Baptiste Turcott submitted his application to Governor Lord Durham for a land grant claiming his service during the War of 1812 as a right to entitlement. It can be assumed that because of the date on the application Jean Baptiste must have remained loyal to the Crown during the recent rebellions which had occurred in both Upper and Lower Canada in 1837. A year before Jean Baptiste's application another Turcot, Louis, had stood before a military court martial and been sentenced to death by hanging for his active role during the same rebellions. Jean Baptiste would eventually move his family to Wolfe Island near Kingston, Upper Canada (Ontario), while Louis would be exiled to Australia. Both would eventually appear on the 1851 census with one living in the newly renamed Canada West (Ontario) and the other back with his family in Canada East (Quebec). The search for a family connection between these two men, as they experienced the 'troublous' times between 1820 and 1851 in Upper and Lower Canada, is the basis for this research guide.

BOOK - The Churches of Old Durham County [Ontario, Canada]
By Sherrell Branton Leetooze
Published by Lynn Michael-John Associates, Bowmanville, 2013
Sher Leetooze has been gathering and compiling local history since 1994, starting with each of the townships in the former Durham County, followed by the story of the Bible Christians and their migration from Britain to Canada and parts of the United States in the early and mid 19th century. So it just seemed natural to follow these projects with the story of all the churches that have been erected in the townships down through the decades. Durham County had six townships: Darlington, Clarke and Hope along the lake shore (aka 'the front'), and Cartwright, Manvers and Cavan at the back. Today, there are only about 70 churches left in the county, while over the past 180 years there have been over that many in Darlington alone .... and 240 in the whole county, to be exact! This includes the various incarnations of the Methodist churches as they proceeded through three unions, and the various branches of the Presbyterians as they split, came together again, then joined the Methodists in 1925 to become part of the United Church.

BOOK - Loyalist Refugees, Non-Military Refugees in Quebec 1776-1784
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2014
Soldiers did not come alone. In the past, wives, mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers and children of the fighting men have been given secondary treatment. In Loyalist Refugees, they are the subjects of a study describing the systematic persecution that forced so many to seek refuge in Quebec. How these unfortunate people were housed, fed, clothed and employed is examined, as is their desperate unhappiness and discontent. This book identifies and lists details for more than 2,000 non-military loyalist refugees who sheltered in lower Quebec during the American Revolution—pointing researchers to crucial primary and secondary sources in Canada, the USA, and the UK. Many if not most of these refugees migrated to places across British North America and beyond, after their period of sanctuary in Quebec. ISBN 978-1-926797-96-0 (Coil bound)    More information

By Mayholme Foundation

When United Empire Loyalists and Settlers petitioned for land in the Niagara District following the American Revolution, the locations, acreage and surveyors documents of the approved petitions and grants were recorded by the Commissioner of the Niagara District and stored locally. On the 10th of December 1813, except for one building, the entire Town of Niagara was burned to the ground including the building which housed all of the land registry documents and records. This was not the only property to have been destroyed by fire by the Americans in the Niagara District but it was the only location of the land documentation. The result being that after the secession of hostilities it became necessary for a Commissioner to personally interview every Loyalist and Settler in the Niagara District as to the disposition of their lands. Witness accounts of the losses were also taken to prove or disprove the war loss claims.
