The Ottawa Genealogist: Oct-Dec 2014

OGS Ottawa Branch members should have received the latest branch quarterly, The Ottawa Genealogist. In addition to the regular news and columns the feature content is:

- A World War Trifecta in which John Patton recounts experiences on a family trip to Vimy Ridge, the Normandy Landing beaches, and the site of the Dieppe Raid.

- The 1/4th Hampshires In Mesopotamia by Mike More. Lacking any military records for his grandfather, Private AJ Knowles, Mike digs into the The Hampshires war to gain an understanding of the experience.

- Early Bytown Settlers Index by Jim Stanzell is the final installment of a personal indexing project of a variety of Ottawa area sources covering the surname letters T to Z (actually Y).

- OLD-TIME STUFF. Three articles originally published in the Ottawa Citizen between 1930 and 1932 and selected by Helen Small.
