Crime and Punishment in Upper Canada: A Researcher's Guide

Ontario genealogist Janice Nickerson has just published a book Crime and Punishment in Upper Canada: A Researcher's Guide.

According to her Facebook posting ``It's about the justice system in early Ontario (1791-1841) and provides a social history of how the justice system worked at the time, including all the personnel involved and the courts, jails, etc. It also includes inventory listings of records you can use to research your own ancestors' involvement with the justice system - whether as a victim, witness, accused criminal, juryman, justice of the peace... etc.

There`s more information, and the opportunity to order, at the publisher`s (Dundurn Press) website.
