OGS Families: February 2014 issue

In the 40 pages, including cover pages, of the February 2014 issue of the Ontario Genealogical Society's quarterly journal, Families, 12 items are classified as articles, about three-quarters of the issue.
The longest article, six pages, is Researching Your Manitoulin Ancestors by Shelley J. Pearen. Those who live on islands and similar geographically seperate communities, are fortunate that they more than pull their weight when it comes to local pride in the community and its heritage. This article provides research guidance needed by someone who finds their genealogical journey leading onto the island.
Zeb Crouteau: "The Trapper from Pouce Coupé" (1877-1933) by Lynne Duigou is the story of a trapper in British Columbia and the arduous journey to recover his body.
Jack of Two Hearts by Sandra Lewis recounts the story of Jack Ledsham, an immigrant from Cheshire in 1913 and his dedication to the Jehovah's Witnesses as well as his family.

There is a variety of shorter articles, OGS news and notices. The regular Name Game column has three entries; one book is reviewed and there is half a page of commercial advertisements in addition to three pages of OGS ads.
