Bytown or Bust

I was surprised at Gene-O-Rama to find that one of our long time BIFHSGO members, with roots in the Ottawa Valley, was not aware of the Bytown or Bust website. It's a local treasure of a resource, over 1,100 pages of information, for migration and settlement in the Ottawa area in the 1800's, especially for the Irish.

If you visit often enough you'll either learn to love or hate the background music "When You and I Were Young, Maggie" that plays on the main page.
