I had them at the BIFSGHO Fall Conference and will likely have a stock for Gene-O-Rama on 1-2 April as well.

John, I just want to let your readers know that I have written a book review on Janice Nickerson’s book, “Crime and Punishment in Upper Canada: A Researcher's Guide”, and it will appear in the January/February 2011 edition of “Family Chronicle” magazine.

Thank you.
