I support the recommendation. Anyone researching in Ontario needs to have
Brenda's book within reach.

Subject: [UPPER-CANADA] New Book
The fourth edition of _Genealogy in Ontario: Searching the Records_ by
Brenda Dougall Merriman was officially launched on May 31st at the annual
conference of the Ontario Genealogical Society (the publisher of the book:
www.ogs.on.ca). For those familiar with older editions, this new one meets
the 21st century world of genealogy.
The introductory section includes traditional research principles and our
increasing use of Internet resources. The usual genealogical sources are
treated from vital records to census to immigration, but much more is
available---the intricacies of land records, civil and criminal justice (as
well as wills and estate files), military fonds, religious institutions,
Loyalists, family occupations, education, and so on. You will learn where to
find the records, the context for their creation and how to use the finding
aids. Each chapter includes both print and website references.
With Lorine's permission, I respectfully submit this notice because I think
the book would answer many questions that appear on this list from time to
Thank you, Lorine!
