3 NEW CANADIAN RELEASES


3.1 BOOK ON CD:

*  Historical Sketches of the County of Elgin - 1895

CA0355:  $13.00


Originally published by The Elgin Historical and Scientific Institute in 1895, this book is actually a collection of three individual papers on this theme as follows: 

- The Country of the Neutrals by James H. Coyne. (44 pages) 

- The Talbot Settlement by C. O. Ermatinger (17 pages plus 1 plate). And 

- Development of the County of Elgin by K. W. McKay (46 pages plus 1 plate)  


Additionally, and in support of these papers, there are two maps one of which is a "pull out" copy of the 1670 map drawn by Galinee, which was the first made by actual exploration showing Lake Erie.  The second is a map of the whole county.  It is undated but is presumed to be contemporary with the date of the book's publication.  Finally there are several pages of tabular and textural data stuffed with facts about the County of Elgin and its history including listings of the officers and members of the Elgin Historical and Scientific Institute.


"The County of Neutrals" provides Mr. Coyne's findings about the early history of the general area which was later destined to be know as Elgin County.  He explains the evidence which led to the finding that the original inhabitants were the tribe know as the "Neutrals" during the time that the Iroquois and the Hurons were doing battle.  His researches in this period are very thorough and produce a vivid picture of life in those times.  From there he moves, at a rather faster pace, through subsequent historic eras with the European settlers having more and more influence on the character of the land, concluding with the landing of Col. Talbot in the very early 1800's.


C. O. Ermatinger's paper, "The Talbot Settlement" provides a nice concise record of the work and events during the 30 odd years that Talbot was actively administering homesteading on this tract of Upper Canada as an "onsite" agent of the Canadian government.  The account does not skip around those aspects of this settlement activity which might be considered questionable, but neither does it make any accusations, so we can describe it as being an unbiased account.


McKay's "Development of the County of Elgin" takes a completely different approach to tracing the roots of the development of the community which occupies Elgin County. He examines the events, agreements, processes through which an interactive community forms itself and comes to a state of organization within the overall framework of a larger (area) government.  Mr.McKay does not shy away from naming those people who played significant roles in this development process and indicates the offices they filled.


3.2 GLEANINGS:


     All of the following are Gleaned from: The Scotch-Irish in America, proceedings of the Third Congress, 1891.

*  Patriotism of The Scotch-Irish.

CAG080:  $2.50

A paper, by George Macloskie, providing a spirited defense against supposed accusations of a lack of American patriotism by the display of Scotch-Irish loyalty which is the public face of the society.  The author points out that recognizing a common ancestry does not indicate a lack of American loyalty.

by: George Macloskie  Size: (pages) 6,  (download) 1.8 MB


*  The Scotch-Irish People: Their Influence in the Formation of the Government of the United States.

CAG081:  $3.50

The author, J. H. Bryson, reviews the history of those North American colonies which now constitute the United States.  He concentrates on the political, rather than the physical, conditions through the lead up to the Declaration of Independence and the resultant war of Independence. Following on, then, through the formation of a body of National Governance leading to the formation of the Constitution and the activities resulting in the formation of a National Government.  Throughout the author points out the influence of those of Scotch-Irish origins who formed some one third of the total population at the declaration of Independence.

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

4 COMING SOON:

Unfortunately another month plagued with unavoidable distractions so we still have the great book from the Vernon & District Family History Society as next on the scanner.  While we were in Toronto we reached an agreement with a friend to make a digital reproduction of a wonderful old handwritten, never before published, book which is going to be of interest to those with ancestors who lived in Nova Scotia.  We want to do something rather special with this book which involves input from others so the time of release of this may not be entirely in our hands.  Never the less we want to get our initial part (the scanning) done in this coming month if we can.

5.2 AUSTRALIAN TOPICS


5.2.1 VICTORIA


*  Bendigo and Vicinity 1895

AU7003:  $24.10

by W. Kimberly  The rapid growth of Bendigo - which is now the third largest city in Victoria - has seldom been rivalled in all history in any country. Originally known as Sandhurst, the city grew quickly out of the Victorian gold rush and became established as a major provincial hub and minor financial centre. With the growth came elements of stability and permanency.  In 1895 'Bendigo and Vicinity' was written to be a 'faithful record' of the town, its services and its people. The book is divided into two sections, the first containing chapters on Bendigo's history, including the the city before gold, various pioneering experiences, the public institutions and buildings, real estate, the gold seekers, the goldfields. This section contains photos of hundreds of beautiful photographs in and around Bendigo, or buildings, parks, churches, fountains and more. The second half of the book contains biographies of people in Bendigo's history as well as histories of important companies and firms that helped to establish Bendigo. Each of these includes a photograph. This book provides an valuable resource for those interested in the history of Bendigo region and the people who established it.       


*  History of Bendigo 1891

AU7008:  $19.20

Bendigo in 1891 had a population of about 100,000 people which placed it as the third largest regional centre in Victoria after Geelong and Melbourne.  This volume charts the history of the town and city in the 40 years since it was founded in 1851, when gold was discovered. Word of the discovery spread quickly and soon after the township of Sandhurst was established. It was not until 1891 that the city's name was changed to Bendigo, in honour of the bare knuckled boxer, William "Abednego" Thompson, whose name had been lent to the creek where gold was first discovered. It covers the discovery and mining of gold, as well as the growth of the town into a city, and all that it encompasses, such as the laws and administration, progress and development, council and politics, newspapers and journalism, the public institutions, churches, water supply, agriculture and more. Also covered is the Duke of Edinburgh's visit, and the announcement of Sandhurst (Bendigo) as a city. This comprehensive look at the history of Bendigo, which shows immense changes in both the region and population, in such a short time span, is a valuable record for those who have an interest in the region as well as those interested in mining, and Australian history in general.       


*  Bendigo Goldfield Map 1913

AU7009:  $14.00

This consists of 4 separate maps joined here to make one large complete reference map - 0.71 metres wide x 2.35 metres high at a scale of 8 chains to one inch.  It was "issued by W. Dickson, Secretary for Mines" 24 May 1913. It shows the goldfields in red over a detailed base map of roads, allotments and other topographical features.       


*  Annals of Bendigo Volume 1: 1851-1867

AU7010-1:  $16.00

This collection was collected mainly from 'The Bendigo Advertiser' which started in 1853. This is a compilation of events that happened throughout the period, all in chronological order, giving the reader a quick overview of the highlights of each year.  Meetings, new railway, the hospital, ministry news, dense fog, Burke & Wills, severe floods, gas lines, theatres, building works, hotels destroyed by fire, births and deaths of locals, the new newspaper, election bungle, Bendigo Volunteer Rifles, vineyards, local events, and of course mining, including mining statistics ... it's all listed here, plus so much more. It includes many photographs of local people and happenings. Volume 1 of the the 'Annals of Bendigo' was published in 1912, and was compiled by George Mackay. He went on to compile four volumes, taking the series up to 1920. The work has then continued using various compilers. Currently the series stands at eight volumes and has been taken up to 1987. You will find information on thousands of local people and happenings listed throughout this volume. Not only a must for those with ancestors in Bendigo, but also ideal for anyone with an interest in the social history of Bendigo, or Victoria as a whole.   


*  Annals of Bendigo Volume 3: 1892-1909

AU7010-3:  $16.00

In 1916, George Mackay continued his popular series of the 'Annals of Bendigo'. This third volume covers the period 1892-1909, and in this one you will find that the population of Greater Bendigo is listed as 46,463, thanks to the statistics from the 1901 Bendigo census which have been recorded.  Similar in style to the earlier volumes, this is a vast collection of information gleaned primarily from 'The Bendigo Advertiser'. It is a record of events that happened throughout the period, all in chronological order, giving the reader a quick overview of the highlights of each year. Meetings, new railway, the hospital, ministry news - including new ministers, elections, the rain of red mud, sports groups and facilities, mining accidents, portraits unveiled, hospital fair, obituaries, photographic pioneers, music and drama, tramway, fires and floods, openings of new public buildings, the first Old Bendigonians Reunion, St Aidan's Orphanage, local events, and of course mining, including mining statistics ... it's all listed here, plus so much more, It includes many photographs of local people and happenings. You will find information on thousands of local people and happenings listed throughout this volume. Not only a must for those with ancestors in Bendigo, but also ideal for anyone with an interest in the social history of Bendigo, or Victoria as a whole.   


*  Bendigo Goldfield 1936

AU7015:  $14.00

Bendigo is one of the richest and certainly the most permanent of the Victorian goldfields. As at 1936, it was the only state with an unbroken production record extending back to the middle of the 1800s. During that period the yield from the Bendigo field amounted to 1/4 of the total production of the state, and approximately 1/10 of the total yield from the whole of Australia.  This small book published by the Mines Department in 1936, is not intended as a detailed publication on such an extensive and rich auriferous area, but as an account of its more salient features, a summarised record of it's past productivity, and a broad review of present operations for future prospects. The Line of Reef covered by this book are: Tysons, Lightning Hill, Hustlers, Derby, Paddy's Gully, Garden Gully, Deborah, Sheepshead, New Chum, Nell Gwynne, British and Foreign, Napoleon, Lancashire, Carshalton, Thistle, Christmas, and Birds. A detailed map showing the lines of each reef is included.       


*  Victorian Military Forces: General Orders 1895

AU7016:  $19.20

The 'Victorian Military Forces 1895' is a list of events that have been documented  that relate to those in the Victorian military forces during 1895.  Arranged chronologically, and broken down into months, you will find details of dismissals, leave granted, transfers, change in position, disciplinary actions (as well as who it applies to, and the consequence), extension of service, rations, allowance of clothing, memos, details on meetings, arrangements for gun salutes, military activities, examinations and more. It contains a comprehensive index.  A useful reference work for those with an interest in the early Australian military forces, or if you had someone in the Victorian military forces.

6 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.


------------------

THE UPPER CANADA BOOK FAIR:

We received an invitation to bring our CD Digital Book products to the Upper Canada Book Fair to be held at the Ecoty Education Centre, near Perth, Ontario, on the 26th and 27th of June.  We are always pleased to support such activities if they are within our travel range so you will find us there over the weekend.  As the name implies the theme of the fair is Upper Canada (the old name for Ontario) and there is a full schedule of talks and panel discussions set for both days, including lectures by most of the 20 or so authors who will be attending with copies of their books for sale.  Even though this is not a "strictly genealogy" event the history of our environment is so strongly coupled to our genealogy that I'm sure you will find this a rewarding experience.  I'm also informed that the Ecotay Education Centre is a wonderful place to visit.  For full information, including a schedule of the talks, etc. go to the Internet link:
