BOOK - A Service History and Master Roll of Major Edward Jessup's Loyal Rangers
By Gavin K. Watt with the research assistance of Todd A. Braisted
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2017
The families of Edward Jessup’s Loyal Rangers were major contributors to the settlement of eastern Ontario. Of the original thirteen townships, four were primarily settled by Loyal Rangers, yet the history of this important regiment has largely disappeared. There are two sections to this book. The history element goes back to the very beginning when men were preparing for military service, and follows the varied paths they took to see their plans realized, some with more success than others. A great deal of attention is given to General John Burgoyne’s expedition of 1777, as the several units that were brought together to create the Loyal Rangers in 1781 had served separately under Burgoyne, and the majority suffered for it. The history follows the aftermath of Burgoyne’s surrender -- exile in Quebec, squabbling among the officers, lack of proper employment, little subsistence and no pay. In 1778, there was a failed attempt to combine them into a single battalion followed by many more exasperating events. Bodies of men were sent on military raids and scouts, but their future as separate regiments remained uncertain until the governor took the situation in hand and forced an amalgamation in 1781. The history finishes with details of the war’s final two years and the subsequent disbandment and settlement. The second section is a Loyal Rangers’ Master Roll, which was assembled by examining a great many original and secondary sources. The roll records the details of seven hundred and sixteen men whose names were found on Loyal Rangers’ returns of 1781 to 1783 ISBN 978-1-77240-076-2 (soft cover - coil bound)     More information

BOOK - A Genealogists' Guide to Researching British Home Children   
By Gloria F. Tubman
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2017
Thousands of British Home Children were resettled in Canada between the 1870s and 1939. The social and economic causes that percipitated the export of orphaned and destitute children to Canada was a product of the times -- the effects of the industrial revolution and a lack of an adequate social safety net being the largest contributors. The child migration initiative was supported by the governments on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This book is a compilation of articles and columns that Tubman wrote in an effort to inform those who are interested in British Home Children movement, and to provide researchers with the information needed to research records of individual Home Children. Most of the articles were originally published in The Equity newspaper of Shawville, Quebec. The Quarrier Homes of Scotland article was published in Anglo Celtic Roots, the journal of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa. All are reprinted in this volume with permission from the The Equity and Anglo Celtic Roots. ISBN 978-1-77240-075-5     More Information

BOOK - THE ANNOTATED TRIAL of GEORGE FREDERICK BOUTELIER and JOHN BOUTELIER for the MURDER of FRÉDÉRIC EMONEAU [EMINAUD] and his family, with genealogies of the Emoneau and Boutelier families    (Lunenburg, Nova Scotia)
By Kenneth S. Paulsen
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2017
The murder of the Emoneau (Eminaud) family in 1791 has fascinated genealogists and amateur historians for decades. The Emoneau deaths of 1791 at the hands of two Boutilier brothers were the first murders in Lunenburg since the community had been settled in 1753. The nature of the murders and the trial have been viewed as controversial since evidence to convict the Boutilier brothers was largely circumstantial and scant at best. Interestingly, the lawyer for the Crown published the transcript of the trial in 1791, but the trial faded from memory until 1895 when historian and judge Mather Byles DesBrisay published the History of the County of Lunenburg in which he devoted five pages summarizing the unfortunate events of March 1791. This summary of the murder and trial revived interest in the murders that persists into the 21st century. Historian and genealogist Dr. Kenneth S. Paulsen has taken the 1791 transcript and annotated it to provide background information on everyone involved in the trial from the judge to the jury and witnesses. The participants in the trial represent a cross section of Lunenburg's multicultural settlement. Additionally, an introduction provides context on the Emoneau family. Genealogies of the Emoneau and Boutilier families complete the book. Dr. Paulsen's interest in the murders and trial is more than an historical curiosity as he is a direct descendant of murdered Emoneaus as well as a sibling of the murderers.

BOOK - Cheese Stakes, Lanark County's Mammoth Cheese and its Place in Cheesemaking History    (Lanark County, Ontario)
By Ron W. Shaw
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2017
Cheese Stakes explores the nineteenth century story of the Lanark County Mammoth Cheese in the context of its place in a long tradition of oversized cheeses, and examines the remarkable, never to be repeated, achievement it represented in the annals of the cheesemakers' art. On April 25, 1893, the largest cheddar cheese ever manufactured anywhere in the world arrived on the grounds of the World's Columbian Exhibition at Jackson Park, Chicago, Illinois. Pressed seven months earlier in a Canadian Pacific Railway Company freight shed at Perth, Ontario, as it travelled to Chicago its massive 22,000 pounds weight snapped the railway car truss rods four times, its casing attracted a mass of graffiti and, as it was dragged into its exhibit space, the 'Canadian Mite' crashed through the floor of the Dairy Pavilion. Purchased by Britain's most prominent cheesemongers, it was transported to England and paraded through the streets of London, cut with a garden spade, and eaten by English consumers. Cheese Stakes is an essential read for those with an interest in the agricultural roots of Ontario; cheesemaking history, and in the individuals who were amoung the cast of characters who played a role in the great adventure of the Lanark County Mammoth Cheese.

The War of 1812 in British North America, Searching for your Ancestor's Elusive War Records provides researchers with an up-to-date guide to help you locate military service and other useful records from the War of 1812.

Muster rolls, pay lists, medal rolls, pension requests, land grant applications, war loss claims, and various other records can help in the search. Cox's book identifies which records are available, how to access them, and discusses interpretation of findings. Generously illustrated with examples, this book will be of great help to those seeking to find surviving personnel records from the War of 1812.
