BOOK - A Collection of Lanark County, Ontario Marriage Records 1817-1867
By Peter Andersen
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2015
Nearly three decades ago, Peter Andersen extracted and recorded marriage records from the church registers of a long list of Lanark County churches of various faiths. He also compiled lists of Strays -- marriages of Lanark County natives who married outside of the county, or in other churches. Extracts of marriage notifications published in the Lanark Observer newspaper (Lanark Village) have been included in this collection. These seven hundred pages of marriage records have been built into a single searchable digital file that is bookmarked by the name of the source and date range of records contained within each section. (e.g. Perth Presbyterian Church 1817-1857). Being able to search through all 41 sets of records with a single search is especially helpful when you are not sure of where, when, or in which church that a marriage was solemnized. The collection includes about 84,000 individual names of brides, grooms, and named witnesses who participated in solemnizing approximately 14,000 marriages between 1817 and 1967.

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. A valuable resource for genealogists. ISBN 978-0-9190130-80-3    More information

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 - Laying the Children’s Ghosts to Rest: Canada’s Home Children in the West
By Sean Arthur Joyce
Published by Hagios Press, Regina, 2014
Between 1869 and the early 1930s more than 100,000 children were rounded up from the streets of Britain to be used as labourers in Canadian homes and farms.

With painstaking research and an ability to bring personal details to life, Joyce imbues the stories of 'home children' with a sense of redemption and human dignity. Joyce asks, "Are we a people who have lost our ghosts? Or are we in fact haunted by them, but can't remember their names?" as he raises the specter of thousands of child ghosts who inhabit our Canadian landscape. A must-read for those with an interest in British Home Children. ISBN 978-1-926710-27-3    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.

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

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.
