3 NEW CANADIAN RELEASES
 
3.1 Canadian Books
 
*  Papers & Records Vol. XII (1914), Ontario Historical Society
CA0171-14:  $21.00
This is a complete reproduction of the papers presented to the Ontario Historical Society in its 12th report (1914.)  These annual publications are often a gold mine of valuable genealogical and history information but it can be difficult to recognize because it tends to be “hidden” within the overall “Papers and Records” volume title.  For this reason we have also published many of the individual papers presented herein as “Gleanings,” under their more descriptive individual titles.  The contents of this volume also show some thematic relationships so we are also releasing this complete reproduction.
 
The following is a list of the titles of the contents of this volume.  For further descriptions of those papers noted as being published as Gleanings we suggest you consult the Gleanings descriptions also shown in this newsletter.

*  The Township of Scarboro 1796 - 1896
CA0335:  $28.00
Written as one of a number of projects undertaken to mark the centenary of the establishment of this early Upper Canada township, the book is designed to capture the memories and experiences of the founders, "while they remained available," and to record for us here in the future, the events and deeds which shaped and influenced the development of the Scarboro township, which we know better today as Scarborough, an eastern district of the great metropolis of Toronto.
 
 
The book's chapters are each devoted to specific topics and concentrate on providing factual reports.  Several of the chapters were actually authored by assistants to David Boyle, the author of record.  Each of these assistants were themselves well qualified in both literary and history skills.
 
Frequently the authors of area histories of this sort search the archives of local newspapers for content and in this case it seems to have generated two most unusual chapters.  One is "Games and Sports, which records the participants, and winners, of many local sporting events. The other, "Odds and Ends," appears to be a collection of brief news articles which caught the researcher's eye as recording the names of locals or giving the details of notable events.  Probably unique records now.
 
 
Amongst the other topics, and hence chapter headings, to be found in the book are: "The Pioneers," "Domestic Life," "Trades & Tradesmen," "Churches & Ministers," "Schools & Teachers," "Doctors & Lawyers," "Public Houses & Stores," "Villages & Post Offices" and "Militia."
 
From this list of topics one might conclude that the book would mention many of the individuals occupied in these pursuits and indeed such a speculation would be well rewarded.  The Author, in his preface, makes clear his intention is to provide a record of the people and  local events, rather than to once again reiterate the happenings of the history of Canada as a whole which appear in so many other history texts.  Consequently the reader will find mention of many of Scarboro's prior inhabitants together with accounts of those events in their lives which contribute to the local history.
 
 
Following on from the main body of the book are a number of informative appendices including one giving the names of the township’s original land patentees and the dates on which they took up their grants.
 
 
Our digital reproduction of this rare old book is fully computer searchable and the search speed is further enhanced with out FastFind technology so you can find all those family names in the blink of an eye.
 
 
3.2 Canadian Gleanings (CAG_ _ _):
 
*  Toon O' Maxwell—An Owen Settlement in Lambton County (The )
CAG052:  $2.50
Content Description: The story of an early (1827) “Owen community” (a form of commune), sponsored and led by Rev. (Mr.) Peter Jones, in an area which has now become a suburb of Sarnia.  The community failed, partly due to poor harvests, but also because the settlers preferred to settle their own land and take responsibility for their own individual fates.
Gleaned from: Papers & Records Vol. XII (1914), Ontario Historical Society, Published: 1914 (The complete source document is available as Catalogue Number CA0171-14)
by: John Morrison
Size: (pages) 11,  (download) 1.3 MB
 
 
*  U. E. Loyalists of the old Johnstown District. (The )
CAG053:  $4.50
Content Description: Commencing with a reiteration of the events leading to the formation of the group to become known as the United Empire Loyalists this account examines those families who came to take up residence in Johnstown, now Leeds and Grenville, reviewing their oaths of loyalty before moving on to provide the genealogical details of the growth and development of many of the individual families.

Size: (pages) 23,  (download) 2.2 MB
 
 
*  Local History of the Town of Brockville. (The )
CAG054:  $3.00
Content Description: Originating from the landing of a group of UEL families in 1784, Brockville is one of the oldest permanent towns in Upper Canada.  This paper reviews the activities of many of these families as they built their town and helped it take its rightful place in the growing community which was to become Ontario.  Reveals the origins of many of Brockville’s public, private and commercial buildings and spaces.

*  War of 1812-15. (The )
CAG055:  $3.00
Content Description: For those who need a concise account of the facts, events and circumstances surrounding the conflict this paper will be a godsend.  Arguably the most important event in the formation of Canada as an independent nation, the war of 1812 - 1815 was initiated when the newly independent United States felt that British preoccupation with the Napoleonic wars would allow them an easy annexation of the still loyal North American colonies.

*  Reminiscences of the First Settlers in the County of Brant.    
CAG056:  $3.50    
Content Description: The work of two descendants of one of these “first settlers” this paper recounts the stories and events surrounding the development of a tract of land originally deeded to Capt. Joseph Brant into the County which now carries his name.  Written with the aid of the family’s historic papers this article is full of important historical and genealogical detail.

Size: (pages) 17,  (download) 2.7 MB
 
 
*  Past and Present Fortifications at Kingston (The)
CAG057:  $3.00
Content Description: The area around Kingston has been recognized as a good defensive position from as early as the conflict between France and Britain over the rights to colonize N. America.  As a consequence forts have located here since earliest times.  The military importance of Kingston peaked during the war of 1812 although the fortifications were maintained for many years after this.  Written mainly to advocate the preservation of these historically important sites this paper provides a good grounding in the military history of Kingston.

*  Reminiscences of earlier years in Brant.    
CAG058:  $3.00    
Content Description: The early history of Brant County and the stories of its earliest Indian inhabitants are inextricably intertwined.  Here are some reminiscences and stories of these, larger then life, individuals told by a descendent of one of the families which played a pivotal part in Brant’s development.

*  Capt. Joseph Brant’s Status as a Chief, and some of His Descendants
CAG059:  $2.50
Content Description: While Joseph Brant’s status as a leader has never been in question, his status as a “Chief” of his people depends on their customs and laws.  This paper explores his status according to these customs & laws.  Also includes family trees showing Joseph’s descendants.

*  Chief Smoke Johnson.    
CAG060:  $2.50    
Content Description: The “Smoke” Johnsons were amongst the original families settling in Brant Co.  This paper examines how the European Johnson name first came to be applied to a full blood Mohawk, indigenous Indian, and then traces members of the descending family to Chief John “Smoke” Johnson who came to fame for his part in the war of 1812.

*  Influence of the War of 1812 upon the Settlement of the Canadian West.    
CAG061:  $2.50    
Content Description: This paper examines the influence the war of 1812 had in giving the inhabitants of those colonies of N. America which remained loyal to Britain, a group identity as Canadians.  It discusses the influence this had on drawing the largely unexplored territories west of the great lakes into a coalition with the existing “eastern” colonies to form the Confederation and finally the Dominion of Canada.  It also notes the effect of the western Selkirk settlements.

*  History of the Hospital for the Insane, Penetanguishene.    
CAG062:  $2.50    
Content Description: The development of the town of Penetanguishene was influenced by a strong military presence.  Many buildings were erected with military purpose in mind, including a large barracks, so that when the military withdrew in 1859, leaving them vacant, the idea of converting some of them into the core of a reformatory for boys came easily.  Subsequently they were converted from this function to that of an insane asylum in 1904 and remained so until this paper was written by an ex-Superintendant in about 1914.  The paper is full of valuable detail and insight.

*  Feudalism in Upper Canada, 1823 - 1843 (McNab Township, Renfrew Co.)    
CAG063:  $3.00    
Content Description: There are many stories of the dubious behavior of government appointed land agents during Upper Canada’s initial settlement and this paper traces what seems to be one of the worst.  An impoverished Scottish chief duped the government into authorizing him to supervise the settlement of a township in the Ottawa valley, to be known as McNab Township.  Instead, he proceeded to set himself up as the Chief of a feudal fiefdom with the settlers duped into the role of serfs.

*  Bush Life in the Ottawa Valley.    
CAG064:  $3.00    
Content Description: Not to be confused with the similar “Roughing it in the bush” by  Susannah Moodie.  This is the joyful reminiscences of a settler who came early to the Ottawa valley and experienced, first hand, the hardship and privation, associated with extracting a living from the untamed Canadian bush.  Except that there is an underlying note of nostalgia and perhaps a hint of sorrow that those heady days have departed, never again to be experienced.  A surprising and intimate glimpse into a long gone life style.

*  David Zeisberger and his Delaware Indians.    
CAG065:  $3.50    
Content Description: Born in Moravia, David’s family was forced, by religious persecution, to flee their country.  He was left in Saxony to complete an education and subsequently rejoined his family who went on to live in Ohio, USA.  He chose to become a missionary and serve amongst the Indian peoples.  Following the Revolutionary war he again had to flee, with a band of Delawares, from the persecution of the US government, finishing up in Canada where the band members were treated as Loyalists.  The latter part of the story is told in the words extracted from David’s journals.

*  Tribal Divisions of the Indians of Ontario.    
CAG066:  $2.50    
- This gleaning is available as a free download on our Downloads page.
Content Description: If you have ever found yourself unable to understand the relative ranges and relationship of the numerous races of indiginous Indians living in Ontario then this paper will provide you with a simple, straightforward, reference to understanding the relatioships and distinctions between the various nations and tribes.

===================
4 COMING SOON:
 
Some of our "best laid" plans for last month were put on hold due to circumstances beyond our control.  So now we are in a "holding" pattern not knowing when our work may be interrupted.  Nevertheless we are going to press on with a full production schedule and see what we can get done.  I've got some Gt. War material, and a book on Upper Canadian settlement both stacked as "Next to do".  Lets see what results?
 
 ===================
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 to tap into the enormous fund of knowledge which I know is out there.
 
WE WELCOME YOUR QUESTIONS AND IDEAS.
A friend of Archive CD Books Canada contacted us earlier this month about an interesting book she had access to, to see if we were interested in it as a project.  Apart from initiating a flurry of email, her enquiry reminded me that I hadn't mentioned, for quite a while, that we are always interested to hear your comments, suggestions and suggestions (well the polite ones anyway :-)  ).  We tend to sit here in our "Ivory Tower" making digital reproductions of our best guess asto what you want, - and hoping we are all on the same page.  Your feedback is our best guide, and while we may not always follow up on your individual suggestions right away (or even at all) you are our best guide to bringing you the books and data you want and need.
 
DELAYED DELIVERY:
Recently we have experienced difficulty in distributing this newsletter because some ISPs are using message rejection software based on the number of suspect messages coming (or appearing to come) from a particular source.  This is not a reliable means of detecting SPAM and we have found our ISP has been blacklisted the last two occasions I tried to issue a newsletter.  I have been able to fix this on both occasions but it takes a few days and the delivery of the newsletter to some of you has been delayed as a result.  I'm afraid there is nothing we can do but to continue to waste out time every month fighting with this problem so please be patient.
 
IMPORTANT NOTICE: 
SPAM filters are becoming very aggressive and we are getting more and more subscriptions from addresses which subsequently reject our confirmation notices and newsletters.  If you hear of someone complaining that we ignored their subscription please tell them to check their rejected SPAM and to edit their SPAM filter to accept the ArchiveCDBooks.ca domain or the Malcolm@ArchiveCDBooks.ca address.  THANK YOU!
