1 WELCOME:

Once more the Christmas season rolls around - or was that over us!  As usual it has sneaked up and caught us unaware - which is quite amazing when every year the shops start their Christmas season promotions earlier and earlier. :)


We have one new Canadian book on CD to offer you this month but it is one of a collections of Papers presented, annually, to the Ontario Historical Society, which means it contains a lot of unrelated, but interesting, topics.  We expect that some of you will only be interested in one or two of the individual papers so we are also extracting individual presentations and offering them as Gleanings (which we deliver to you as downloadable files.)  This avoids several cost generating processes so we can offer them at a much more affordable price.  A few of the presentations are very large (for Gleanings) and so cost a bit more than our “normal” range but since at least two of them they are transcriptions of church registers and contain literally hundreds of individual records, and another is a regimental history of the Kings Royal from New York, they are still exceptional value.


We have also reduced the price of most of our Australian topic products.


As usual we also have our latest news and gossip as well as news and updates of upcoming Canadian Meetings and Events.  Hopefully, this will help you to select the events you want to attend.

   

Remember this Newsletter is published for you so if you think we're missing something important drop me a line to

Newsletters work best when they get a good circulation. We're doing our best to let people know about it but you could help us along by mentioning it to your genealogy buddies and generally spreading the word. Feel free to pass this copy along, but only in its complete form please.

3. NEW CANADIAN CD RELEASES:


*  Papers & Records Vol. XXVII (1931), Ontario Historical Society

  CA0171-31: $19.50


This is a complete reproduction of the 27th volume of papers published by the Ontario Historical Society in 1931.  These publications are generally a gold mine of valuable genealogy and history information but it can be difficult to recognize the value of the individual papers because they are “hidden” within the overall “Papers and Records” title of the collection.  For this reason, and to allow you to select only the chapters you are interested, in we also published a selection of the individual papers as “Gleanings,” under their more descriptive individual titles.  


The following is a full list of the Contents of this volume.  For further descriptions of those papers noted as being published as Gleanings (marked: CAGXXX) we suggest you consult the following Gleanings descriptions. Brief descriptions of the remaining papers follows the table.

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 last month genealogical news and special offers and new releases here is a count of our posts:

“Hints” & “Comments”; 22

Notice of Special Access, or Free Offers; 5

New Releases: 2

Consider becoming a “Liker” so that, not only will you get all the "hot" news, but you can join in the ongoing discussions, or even pass on some tips and hints of your own.


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.)


If you are already a Facebook member then you can find the Archive CD Books Canada wall 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.

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!
