3. NEW CANADIAN CD RELEASE:


 Down in Nova Scotia - 1934

CA0105:  $12.00


The title continues: “My Own, My Native Land.”  Written by local born author, Clara Dennis, this is the first in her famous trio of books which captured the essence and landscape of Nova Scotia in the 1930’s and 40’s.  Clara used a relaxed and informal, almost gossipy, style to pass to the reader not only the hard facts but also the feeling of the beloved Province as she traveled through it, pausing to explore when and wherever something caught her interest.  As a result the reader is transported back to that time and place almost as if the experience were personal and direct.


Of course such a writing style results in an almost butterfly like sampling of all sorts of of subjects; from landscape to legend and from architecture to anthropology, making a brief and succinct précis  almost impossible.  Instead, below is an extraction of some of the names - and a couple of subjects - in the books Table of Contents which provides some guidance through the 410 pages and 21 chapters.  The extracted names are mostly personal and geographic, but they also include at least one example of a traditional First Nations mythical figure.


Names from Table of Contents:

Abbe Sigogne.;  Acadia College.;  Acadians (expulsion from Sand Hills.);  Alexander, Sir William.;  Alline, Henry.;  Allain's River.;  Angel Amireau's will.;  Annapolis.;  Auburn (Episcopal church at.);  Avon River (The).;  Babin, Marie - Acadian.;  Baccaro.;  Pombcoup, Baron de.;  Barrington.;  Port Royal, Basin of.;  Bear River.;  Bedford Basin.;  Benoni d'Entremont.;  Birch Cove.;  Inglis, Bishop, at Aylesford.;  Blomidon.;  Bowers, Philip and Abigail.;  Burchtown.;  Canning.;  Cape Roseway Light.;  Cape Sable Island.;  Cape Sable.;  Cape Split.;  Champlain (The gardens).;  Charnisay.;  Chebogue (the lupin trail to).;  Christ Church.;  Citadel Hill.;  Tour, Claude de la.;  Clermont;  McNutt, Alexander, Col.;  Noble, Col.;  Cornwallis.;  d'Entremont, Cyraque .;  De Mings, Anthony.;  Digby Neck (The Ward House.);  Digby, Admiral.;  Digby.;  Doane, Edmund.;  Ellershouse.;  Ericson, Leif.;  Fairy Lake.;  Fort Edward.;  French Landing.;  Ruggles, General .;  General's Bridge.;  Glooscap (the legend.);  Glooscap's Grandmother.;  Grand Pre.;  Granville.;  Gravenstein  (a famous apple tree).;  Grosses Coques.;  Gunning Cove.;  Haliburton House.;  Halifax Explosion.;  Hawk (The).;  Hichens, Mary (heroine.);  Indian Hill.;  Jordans, The.;  Kedgemakoogee.;  Kemptville.;  Kent, Duke;  King's College.;  La Tour.;  Lockeport.;  Long and Briar Islands.;  MacKinnon, Col. Ranald (and clan.);  McGills of Ohio.;  McNutt's Island.;  Mill Cove.;  Mink Cove.;  Morden.;  Mountain Cemetery.;  Mud Island.;  Grand Pre, Old Covenanters' church.;  Pereau Road (the).;  Peter Stuart, (loss of).;  Port Clyde.;  Port Hebert.;  Port La Tour fort.;  Port Maitland.;  Port Royal.;  Port Royal.;  Prescott House (the).;  Prince's Lodge.;  Pubnico & the Acadians.;  Quinan.;  Rand, Silas.;  Rappe pie.;  Roberts Island.;  Robie, Simon Bradstreet.;  Roseway.;  Round Bay Beach.;  Sable Island;  Sackville River at Bedford.;  Sand Hills.;  Sandy Cove;  Sandy Point.;  Scots Bay.;  Seal Island.;  Shelburne.;  Sir Robert Borden.;  Slavery & slaves.;  Smith, Archelaus.;  Springhaven.;  St. Alphonse de Clare.;  St. Bernard (church).;  St. John's Anglican church, Fairview.;  St. Mary's Bay.;  Starrs of Starr's Point (the).;  Street, Robie;  Titanic Disaster.;  Town Point.;  Trinity Church.;  Tupper, Sir Charles, (grave of.);  Tusket.;  Uniacke, Richard John.;  Wedgeport.;  Wellington Dike (the).;  Welshtown.;  Western Head .;  White, Gideon.;  Wilkins, Isaac.;  Wilkins' Folly.;  Windsor.;  Wolfville.;  Yarmouth.



 More About Nova Scotia - 1937

CA0107:  $12.00

The second in the famous trilogy of exploration books written about her home province - Nova Scotia - by author Clara Dennis, this one was first published in 1937. All of these books falls into the “travel-literature” genre of the commercial publishing world, but such a description fails to do justice to Clara’s gift for bringing her chosen subjects to life with insights into local culture, her own photography as well as very realistic topographical descriptions.


In this book, Clara continues her exploration of Nova Scotia’s “mainland”, interviewing the interesting locals where she found them available, to augment the more formal “regular” history.  The book also contains her telling of such classics as the legends of Glooscap, the ghostly story of the Mary Celeste, and the remarkable story of Annie Swan, one of the World’s tallest women.  That is not to say that the regular histories are neglected and you can read about; The Expulsion of the Arcadians, The arrival of the Hope and the Hector and the Privateers invasion of Lunenburg - amongst others.  Such a wide range of topics makes it very difficult to provide the reader with complete details of the books content so, instead, we have made an attempt to extract the more obvious names, places, and events which appear in the book’s Table of Contents.

 ==================

4 COMING SOON:

As mentioned above, we still need to make the software changes which will allow us to place all three of the Clara Dennis books on a single CD, with the ability to search all three simultaneously.

We are also still working on the Cameron family history books but progress is not as advanced as we had hoped for.  It’s one of the consequences of placing quality first, and one we are glad to live with.

Our Graduation picture (portraits) of the1922 class of  Ontario Dental Surgeons and their Professors is still not quite ready but we are well along with the transcription.  It shouldn’t be long now..


 ===================

5 NEWS & GOSSIP:

If any of you have genealogy related questions of a general nature - or something specifically related to Archive CD Books - we'd be glad to publish your question in this newsletter so you can tap into the enormous fund of knowledge which I know is out there.


______________UPDATED

ADDITION: I feel that, in the interests of “Equal Time” I should also point out that we have had a number of our digital reproductions available to be read on WorldVitalRecords.com (My Heritage) for several years now.  World Vital Records is a subscription site but - like most these days - you can obtain a “free” trial to make sure you will get value from it.


 PREVIOUSLY: When we display at the genealogy shows we can attend we frequently get the comment that our visitors would like our CD but they didn’t want the whole book - just a part of it.  Well, now you can have just that.  We have teamed up with the FindMyPast organization and they are providing access to some 200 of our Canadian made digital books and documents.  Findmypast.com is a subscription, genealogy data site which originated in the UK but which has grown by adding sites in Ireland, Australia and now the US.  In addition to the normal periodic subscriptions, the site offers a “pay-by-the-page” option if your data needs are very focused.  We continue to operate our regular commercial website where you can still buy any of the CD version of our books you find online.  For a quick access to the collection of our books on Findmypast.com follow:

WE'RE ON FACEBOOK:


We use our Facebook page to spread the word about notable events, special offers and just plain old “scuttlebutt” which we think will be of interest to Canadian genealogists, and which may have a short “shelf life.” To me, being a Canadian genealogist means having roots in other parts of the World as well as right here.  In an effort to keep focused on the Canadian content I try to filter out a lot of the vast wave of US (only) news which tend to overwhelmed most other news sources. 


In this last month our most popular posts have been: 

The address of a British Government web site for finding British military personnel will from between  1850 and 1968.

The Library & Archives “announcement” that they are partnering with a “not for profit”  Canadian group to provide more digital content.  The quotes because it looks very much like a relationship which has already been in place for years.

A post about choosing “the best” genealogy software packages?  


This is only three of the (about) twenty posts last month.  I try and keep the posting to only significant events as they occur.  But they do frequently iinclude posts about “specials” and “free access” opportunities which only last a few days.  Add your “Like” to the site and be “in the know!”

If you have an item which you would like us to post on Facebook (and you don't wish to do it yourself) or you wish to have it posted in this newsletter then send it to me at:

Malcolm@ArchiveCDBooks.ca and we'll see what we can do.  (Please indicate if you would prefer we post it on Facebook as we may leave it to be posted in the newsletter otherwise.)

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT EMAIL: 

Mail filters are becoming very aggressive and we are still getting newsletter subscriptions from addresses which subsequently reject our confirmation notices and postings. (We are routinely getting several reject notices a month - in spite of unsubscribing people after their third sequential rejection!)  If you hear of someone complaining that we ignored their newsletter subscription, or that we have stopped delivering to them, please tell them to check their rejected messages and to edit their personal filter to accept the ArchiveCDBooks.ca domain or the Malcolm@ArchiveCDBooks.ca address.  THANK YOU!


ADDITIONAL NOTE:  Many ISP’s are using networked “black-list” filters to prevent unwanted mail getting through to you.  Don’t forget to put our addresses (above) on your ISPs “allow” list so this news letter doesn’t finish up in their Trash basket.
