Extended distribution of Pat Wohler's genealogy column

For some while Ottawa area genealogist J Patrick Wohler has been writing a genealogy column published in newspapers in the west end of the city and up the Ottawa Valley. This week the column started to appear in the local paper delivered to my area, The News EMC Ottawa South Edition. That's a welcome addition, especially as Pat frequently mentions local genealogical events.

This week Pat writes about Researching Jewish ancestry in Canada. He notes the unique records kept by Jewish synagogues and the organizations that keep records. Web sites mentioned include the National Archives of the Canadian Jewish Congress, the Ottawa Jewish Archives and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Ottawa.
