Anglo-Celtic Roots: Autumn 2012

The new issue, Vol 18, No 3, arrived in the mail brimming, as usual, with good reading content.

Feature Family History Research articles are:

Bound for Canada, by Andrew Frowd, is part 1 of a collection of letters sent by his grandmother Augusta (Gussie) Mary Oates recounting her experiences as an immigrant to Saskatchewan in 1912-14.

The Rowe Family Bible - a link to their Newfoundland history, by Robert P. Woodland, recounts the story surrounding a family bible with genealogical found hidden in a family home.

Searching for Uncle Percy`s Naval Records, by Betty Warburton, updates the story of Betty`s late husband`s uncle WW1 experiences first presented as a Great Moment.

A Mystery Solved in South Africa, by Helen Garson, finds the search can take you to distant lands.

Articles under Techniques and Resources are:
Discover the War of 1812: Websites, Archives and Books for the Discerning Researcher, by Glenn Wright
It`s Your Library: use It or Lose It!, by Dave Obee
plus regular columns from myself and Betty Warburton.

BIFHSGO News has items on the Evolution of Discovery by Brian Glenn, the Report on the BIFHSGO 2012 AGM by Anne Sterling, a membership update, and notice of a tour of Montreal`s Mount Royal and Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemeteries scheduled for 21 October.

It appears I was mislead in my comment in my column when I wrote that the 2012 annual update of civil registration records should be on the Archives of Ontario website by the time the column is published. It`s delayed.
