Family Chronicle: Jan/Feb 2012 issue

The first 2012 issue of Family Chronicle, the flagship publication from Toronto-based Moorshead Magazines, arrived in my mailbox on Thursday. Its theme, although with just two articles, is the War of 1812.

The War of 1812: An Introduction
David A. Norris gives a basic overview to the genealogical records of the "forgotten war"

George Kuck and the War of 1812
Guylaine Petrin chronicles her research into a British loyal subject and veteran of the War of 1812.

There will be more in one of the company's increasingly frequent, and popular, special publications. The latest "Tracing Your Irish Ancestors" is just released. "Tracing your War of 1812 Ancestors," is coming in May. That's just in time for the annual Ontario Genealogical Society conference with its theme "Borders and Bridges: 1812-2012" which commands a full page ad in this issue.

Regular contributor Emily Anne Croom has two articles:

Remembering Their Time: Sherman's March, 1865
Emily A. Croom looks at one family's Civil War experience

Who Was Theodocia's Mother?
Emily A. Croom documents her quest to discover the name of her great-aunt's mother.

For those of us getting ready for next September's BIFHSGO conference there are two Scottish theme articles:

Tartan Tangles: Unravelling Scots With the Same Names
Amanda Epperson, Ph. D. chronicles her research process for tracing your Scottish ancestors
Scottish Case Study: The Nelson Family
Diane L. Richard chronicles her search for her Scottish ancestors

And there's more.
