2 WHAT'S IN THE NEWSLETTER:


- OUR FREE DOWNLOADS

- A look at what’s coming.

- All our news, gossip and announcements.


===================

3. FREE DOWNLOADS:


When you find a traditional hardcopy (paper) book with an interesting looking title - or written by a familiar sounding Author - what is the first thing you do?  Why, you open it of course:  You have a look at the title page to see if that tells you any more and then you “flip” through the pages to try and get an idea of how much this book can tell you, what sort of information it contains, what it “looks” like, and if it looks like “your” sort of book?


Recognizing this is something missing from your experience with our online bookstore, we looked at how you could find out the same things about one of our digital books.  


We have to accept we can’t offer you the sense of weight, the smell, or the tactile feel of the printed book (which really doesn’t have anything to do with it’s content anyway.)  What we can do is to give you a look at some of the pages, extracted directly from a book, so you could effectively “flip” through it. Then you can see, what it offers you and if it is likely to be useful.  Hopefully, this would let you know if it has the .. well, the undefinable “I like this book” factor.


MAKING A SAMPLER

Our process of “making” a Sampler is part “formula” and part intuition:  


•  We usually include our equivalent to a “dust cover” - what we call our Content page - which gives the books full title and it’s author’s name.  Generally this Cover also has a page, or so, attached to it which repeats our description of the book’s contents (our initial attempt to let you know what the book is about) and any additional information we have added to inform you about any unique or unusual features of the book we have discovered in making our reproduction.  These notes may cover such subjects as the mechanical “make-up” of the book, its page numbering, it’s apparently missing pages, etc., etc.


•  Next we copy several of the books Introductory pages; The Title page, a Frontispiece, a Preface, an Introduction, a Contents page(s), a List of Illustrations or (infrequently) an Index.


•  Following this will be a number of pseudo-randomly selected pages from throughout the book.  Every book has pages which are quite “ordinary” and others which are more “striking.”  With all the best of intentions it is impossible not to favor the more “striking” pages, but we do favor pages carrying text over those which are entirely illustrative (depending on the importance of the illustrations to the purpose of the book!)  Frequently we will select a page because it carries a lot of names.  This is because most genealogists dream of finding a pre-described portion of their family tree in a book, and our intention here is to show them what might be possible in this book.


And that will be as many pages as we can put together into a file which is still readily downloaded to your computer, either for your immediate review or for your retention for future reference.


A few of our reproduced books contain lists of names, either in an appendix, or as an Index or List.  If we can, we will extract these lists from the book’s OCR’ed text and process them into simple alphabetical listings (i.e., removing extra formatting and extraneous information) and make them available as free PDF files.  These Name Lists are also included on the Free Downloads pages.


It might occur to you to ask, “If it is so easy, why don’t you just extract a list of names from all of our books?”   Well, we tried, and found it was incredibly difficult to do without continuous human intervention.  A list, specifically of names, usually has a certain reliable format for each name, and all the entries are “really” people names, i.e., not places, things, or simply the first word in a sentence.  (Hint, remember this the next time you see a count of the “names / people” in a particular record or collection on a subscription site!)  We would rather NOT mislead you, so we don’t publish a list of names unless we can be sure it is just REAL, people names.


SO, HOW DO I FIND ALL THIS FREE STUFF?  

First, go to our website Home/Entry page <http://archivecdbooks.ca/> and look, on the left, at the column under our LOGO.  Click on the “INFO.” and select the “FREE DOWNLOADS  +” line.  This will bring you to the page

< http://archivecdbooks.ca/pages/free-downloads > where you can see a set of links which will take you to pages for each Province and for four particular “topics.”  Well, three really, because the Gleanings takes you to a page which offers you eight Gleanings we decided to offer you for free so you could see the general form of our Gleanings Products.  (They were (mostly) made in a batch of related Gleanings but we evaluated their content to you as too restricted in genealogical / historical value to be worth asking you to buy them.)


Where a product’s Sampler might be applicable to more than one Province we have tried to include it on each of the relevant pages but sometimes this is a tricky decision so check around.  Once you have selected a particular province or topic you will notice the “FREE DOWNLOADS +) item in the left hand column has expanded to show a list of seventeen (17) pages which offer offer Samplers and free stuff which you can check out.


LAST BUT NOT LEAST:  

At the bottom of the Free Downloads page itself we have a number of links which will bring you downloads of “assistance,” “Information,” and “template / form,” pages which we are distributing as a service to the genealogy community as a whole.  Check these out - there may be something there you have a “need” for.



==================

4 COMING SOON:


Much of our effort in this last month has gone into getting out the word about the release (last month) of our New Publication “Working Class Culture and The Development of Hull, Quebec, 1800-1929,”  particularly as we are arranging for the Author, Michael Martin, to appear in the marketplace of the upcoming British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) to speak and to sign the covers of his CD. - 2:45 to 3:15 pm on Saturday 19th -  (The market-place is in a public space just in front of the Nepean Public Library, so feel free to walk in just for the book-signing if you wish, although I would suggest you also take the opportunity to take in the unique range of “wares” available from the vendors.)


Still in work is a mammoth Directory of Montreal, which we are keeping as a maintenance project (something to work on when held up - or when in need of a change of pace) and which - by virtue of its sheer size - is going to take quite a while to complete.


The other ongoing project is a family “pedigree” based on a single name.  This will be a boon if you happen to have that name in your background.  

 ===================

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.


NEW__________

THE NORFOLKLORE FAMILY HISTORY FAIR


Is the oldest genealogy fair in Ontario and is the one annual event that should not be missed if you are interested in Norfolk history and genealogy.  Each year since 1976 it has attracted dozens of genealogical resource providers/exhibitors and hundreds of genealogists researching their Upper Canada/Ontario/Norfolk roots.

There will be a speaker series, door prizes, and vendors.


It will be held Saturday, September 19th, 2015 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Eva Brook Donly Museum & Archives, 109 Norfolk St. S. Simcoe, Ontario. The admission will be $10.00 per person. $5.00 for Historical Society Members. 


The website is http://www.norfolklore.com/

OUR CANADA - YOUR FAMILY, BUILDING A NATION:


The OGS picks their theme for the 2017 conference (NOTE:  2017, not 2016!)  

Is the theme which has been chosen for the Society's conference to be held in Ottawa (the Nation’s Capital); and what a fantastic title!  And the reason that the title of the conference was chosen is that 2017 will be the 150th birthday of the founding of Canada. It will be a super busy time in Ottawa, so why not plan to attend the conference and do some sightseeing during your stay? 


This will be the sixth time that Ottawa Branch will have hosted the conference (plus they co-hosted the 2012 conference in Kingston.)


They already have a small group of volunteers, but they are always looking for more people join them in these efforts.   You can contact them by email at: 

conference2017@ogsottawa.on.ca    OR,

Their webpage is: http://ogsottawa.on.ca/

Point Prim Lighthouse, Prince Edward Island


Many of you may be aware that the Point Prim Lighthouse will become the sole property and responsibility of the Point Prim Lighthouse Society in November. All costs associated with the Light will now be born solely by the Society.

 The Society was wondering if anyone had historical pictures of the Lighthouse inside or out, that they would gift the reproduction rights to the Society. The idea is that the Society would sell Pictures, Postcards, Posters and Bookmarks of the lighthouse as part of our ongoing fundraising efforts.

 The Point Prim Lighthouse was built in 1845, and it is the first and oldest lighthouse on Prince Edward Island. It is also one of only a few round brick lighthouses in Canada

 Please email pictures, or for more information to Vic Douse at douse@sympatico.ca For more Information, go to http://pointprimlighthouse.com/

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 the past month we have only made 8 posts (a slow news month) and the 3 most popular were:

Notice of Ancestry.ca’s Labor Day free access. (This post clocked our record number of “Reaches” ever, by far! )

•        A rather macabre genealogy related cartoon.

•        Notice of free access to the New England Historical & Genealogical Societies databases over the Labour Day weekend. (Their data bases are NOT exclusively US data!)


We try and keep our postings to only “significant” events - as they occur -  but we do also try to include posts about “specials” and “free access” opportunities, which may only be announced a few days/hours, before they happen.


We like to think of our Facebook page as a compliment to this Newsletter, and sometimes  as a quicker reacting extension.


Add your “Like” to our FB page and be “in the know” as it happens. 


If you are already a Facebook member then you can find the Archive CD Books Canada wall by searching for our name or at: 

https://www.facebook.com/ArchiveCDBooksCanada


If you have not yet joined Facebook you can use the same URL but you will need to "sign in" before you can read our wall.


If you have an item which you would like us to give a public airing on Facebook (and you don't wish to do it yourself) - or if 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 that you would prefer we post it on Facebook otherwise we may leave it to be posted in the newsletter.)

______________

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 now using networked “black-list” filters to prevent bulk S_pam_ing*.  Don’t forget to put our addresses (above) on your ISPs “allow” or “white-list” so this news letter doesn’t finish up in the Trash bin.  Well, not before you have read it anyway.

(*There are certain words that activate these filters and the unmodified version of this word is one of them!)
