BIFHSGO interview with Lanark County Historical Society

During the BIFHSGO 18th annual conference Brian Glenn, the Society Director of Research and Projects, recorded conversations with several of the marketplace exhibitors.

Michael Jaques of the Lanark County Historical Society told of the geography of the county, the Society and some of its publications. A recent book is on Colonel Christopher Myers who participated in the War of 1812, was captured, and also arranged aid for the newly settled communities during the winter of The Year Without a Summer (1816) when the crops failed.

Listen here.

Hi John:

Michael Jaques is a member and the query chair of the Lanark County Genealogical Society and also an executive on Archives Lanark Board. You have erroneously called him a member of the Lanark County Historical Society. Janet Dowdall current President of the LCGS
