Anglo-Celtic Roots: Summer 2016

BIFHSGO members should have received their copy of the latest Anglo-Celtic Roots in the past few days. Outside Ottawa the mail may take longer.
The feature articles are:
What's in a name? on the history of the Boucher/Bourchier (rhymes with Voucher) family is by Heather Boucher Ashe and Richard Flynn-Bourchier who are cousins established by DNA testing.
Tracing the origins of the Somers Family by Jane Down tells the story of building up a family tree starting from five old photographs.
We Shall Remember Them: Private George William Burrows (1891 - 1916) is the first of a series of biographies of First World War soldiers treated in the No. 1 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station.
The issue also has the regular columns, including the last of Betty Warburton's long-running series The Bookworm. I join ACR editor Jean Kitchen in expressing appreciation to Betty for her many years as columnist as well as society librarian.
