*MacDonald Research is an imprint of GlobalGenealogy.com Inc.

Reverend John MacDonald served as teh Roman Catholic Priest at Perth, Upper Canada (Ontario) from 1823 to 1837. This book contains two previously published volumes of extracts from Rev. MacDonald's diaries from 1823 to 1836. Additionally, extracts from the 1868-1912 almanacs of Peter Ferguson of Sherbrook Township, and an 1836 Census of "Catholic Souls" residing in Lanark County. If your Catholic ancestor was in Lanark County during the period from which these extracts are taken, they are likely mentioned by name. Part One and Part Two were reprinted from the original masters that were used for the editions published by Duncan MacDonald in 1985 and 1988. Those masters were in very poor condition -- however, every page is included in this edition and the material is readable. Some alterations to the original Introductions were made.

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 - Discover Your Sporting Ancestors: It was Not All Work and No Play!
By Shauna Hicks
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

Have you ever thought about what sporting activities your ancestors might have been involved with? Were they on the local cricket or football team, or did they play darts at the local pub? Were they keen anglers, swimmers or lifesavers? What about horse racing or regular track and field events? Perhaps they were good administrators and served on sporting committees rather than playing themselves. Men and women were both involved with sports and who can forget their own school sports. Many communities had a local cricket, football or other sporting team and in some cases memorabilia and/or photographs have been handed down to alert us to an ancestor's involvement in a sporting activity. We may simply discover someone's involvement when searching newspapers or perhaps there is a mention of a sporting club in a funeral notice. How do you discover more about what they did? This guide shows you where to look for more information and how to make the most of searching websites, newspapers, original records and published sources. ISBN 9781925323047     More Information

BOOK - Arrivals in Australia from 1788
By Kerry Farmer
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

This book introduces the history and records of migration to Australia from 1788. Migrating to a new country was one of the most dramatic life changes anyone undertook and it certainly affected the lives of their descendants. Investigating their journey is a key part of your family history research. However immigration records in Australia are not all held in one place - when, where and how they arrived affect where (and whether) records of their arrival can be found. Understanding categories of arrivals and the immigration schemes in place as well as the general principles of where documents are held, will give you confidence that you have looked in all the right places. 140 pages.

BOOK - A Boyhood Journey, Scotland to Canada 1853
By Charles R. Peterkin, Edited by Mary F. Williamson
Published by Mary F. Williamson, Toronto, 2015
He was 84 years old, and it was 1925 when Charles Robert Peterkin began to recollect the "incidents and adventures" of his youth in Scotland and Canada. Looking back he remembers a carefree boyhood in Aberdeen, a harrowing crossing on the sailing ship Berbice in 1853 with his widowed father and seven siblings, and his determination to become independent after their arrival in Toronto. The memoir ends abruptly with 15-year-old Charles helping to build a new home for Sir Sandford Fleming's father at Craigleith on Georgian Bay -- a gig which taught him the skills he would need to establish a successful wood turning and planing mill in downtown Toronto. Noted historical author Lucille H. Campey observes: "he was an extraordinary, ordinary man!". ISBN 978-177136-362-4     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 - Guide to Baptist Historical Resources in Australia
By D. Parker
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2014
Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

Apart from the usual bdm records, as well as directory or electoral roll listings, researchers of Australian ancestors should consider using church records, and not just for baptisms, marriages or burials. If you had ancestors who attended a particular church there's a good chance they'll be mentioned in church bulletins somewhere along the line. This particular book describes the records specific to the Baptist denomination in Australia, together with where they are, and how to access them. Finally, this guidebook covers information about other sources of historical information on the Baptist denomination, listings about other Baptist groups and also some information about related organisations which may provide helpful background for researchers.

BOOK - My Ancestor was in an Asylum: Brief Guide to Asylum Records in Australia and New Zealand
By S. Hicks
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 20??
Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

The author's interest in asylum records was sparked when she found some of her own ancestors had spent time in asylums, or had died in an asylum. Asylums were not only used to house the poor, the aged, the frail and those who had no one to care for them. Surviving archival records provide a wealth of genealogical information not usually found in government records including information on patients' physical description, personal family details, health information and sometimes even a photograph. If you have lost an ancestor, or simply misplaced them for a few years, then asylum records may be worth investigating. This guide in an excellent introduction to resources available and how to use these resources effectively. ISBN 9781921956348     More Information

Boer War official records were lost or destroyed while those associated with World War One were collected with reverence.

BOOK - Researching in German Civil and Church Records
By E. Kopittke
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

Eric Kopittke answers the question 'How can I obtain a birth or marriage certificate from Germany for an immigrant ancestor?' What the new researcher may not realise is that in Germany the system of births, marriage and deaths by civil authorities, and the issue of associated certificates, has some significant differences to the system that the researcher may be used to. Prior to the introduction of civil registration, churches kept registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, and such church records may allow the researcher to follow the family back for several hundred years. This book is a practical guide that, with the aid of many illustrations, will allow the reader to become familiar with the types of information available on German civil certificates of birth, marriage and death and church records of baptism, marriage and burial. The book then explains how to access these records. ISBN 9781925323085     More Information

BOOK - Death Certificates and Archaic Medical Terms    [an Australian perspective]
By H. Smith
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2011
Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

This book is written from an Australian perpective with most information pertaining to Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Death certificates are an important document in family research, both to 'kill off' our ancestors and to determine their cause of death. This is especially so for people who are interested in establishing their medical genealogy. However at times it seems as though the cause of death is in a foreign language. 'Death Certificates and Archaic Medical Terms' examines the history and evolution of death certificates. When did they start? What is on them? What were the legal requirements? What does it mean when a death is certified? Why aren't all deaths certified? It also gives meanings to a number of archaic terms found on death certificates such as cachexia, breakbone fever, byssinosis, coeliac passion, dipsomania, inanition and Potter's Rot.

BOOK - DNA for Genealogists - Third Edition
By K. Farmer
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2015
Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc., Milton, 2015

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. 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.

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.

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.

Printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
