Adding to our collection of reviews for the Genealogy At-a-Glance series is French-Canadian Genealogy Research by Denise R. Larson. Like each guide in the series, this guide is a colorful, four-page quick sheet of facts and resources related to a specific topics of research, in this case, French Canada.

Each sections (listed below under ‘Contents’) contains key information, predominately historical, about the specific type of records available, followed by references. The author, also, includes a few tips to help the researcher. A key part of this guide is found under the “Unlocking French-Canadian Family History” section. In addition to information on surnames and the immigration of Huguenots, the author covers two key geographic regions, Quebec and Acadia. Acadia represents modern day Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and parts of New Brunswick. All-in-all, the guide is a straightforward, easy-to-use, primer for Canadian family history research.

Some Early Scots in the Maritime Provinces of Canada

Some Early Scots in Maritime Canada, a two-volume set by Terrence M. Punch.

Referring to the Maritime Provinces of Canada, specifically New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Price Edward Island, this book covers the immigration of Scottish settlers into this region. Collecting from a vast array of documents, articles, and vital records, the author “attempts to put names and places to a few thousand of these immigrants in hope that some readers may find an ancestor or a kinsman.”

The two volume set is based on materials found in the Nova Scotia Archives and the Public Archives of New Brunswick, among others resources, and it draws together a unique collection of miscellaneous records pertaining to Scottish immigrants to the Maritime Provinces. Details of life events such as birth, marriage, and death are revealed along with records ranging from newspaper announcements of marriages and deaths to cemetery records and censuses, and from ships’ passenger lists to land records. The book also contains histories, maps, indexes to ships and much more. Thousands of Canadian-Scottish immigrants are named who otherwise might have gone undiscovered through traditional genealogical research.

Last updated: 5 November 2015

The following Canadian Vital Records Databases are now posted at FamilySearch.org. I update this listing as new material is posted.

Note that many of the “number of records” are marked as AFTER a specific date.

So if you haven’t checked one of these AFTER dated websites lately, and it’s important to you, take a minute to go check it out. If the record is listed “AS OF” a specific date, the number of records are really “as of” that date.

Erin’s Sons: Irish Arrivals in Atlantic Canada 1761-1853 – Volume II – New From GPC

Book Review: Erin’s Sons: Irish Arrivals in Atlantic Canada 1761-1853, Volume II; by Terrance M. Punch, FRSAI

Just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day, I got a copy of Terrance Punch’s latest book on Irish immigration to Atlantic Canada – and it’s loaded with informationerins-sons-vol-ii you won’t find elsewhere.

Volume II of Erin’s Sons covers the same time period as its predecessor (currently out-of-print) and the same geographic area – the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. This attractive book lists an additional 7,000 Irish arrivals in Atlantic Canada before 1853.

What is remarkable about this second volume is the rich variety of information derived from hard-to-find sources such as church records of marriages and burials, cemetery records, headstone inscriptions, military description books, newspapers, poor house records, and passenger lists. The resulting body of documents is replete with human drama: shipwrecked immigrants, families in search of members, people taken ill while en route to a distant location, old soldiers fallen on hard times, tenants uprooted from their farms and shipped to Canada, and so forth.

One of the first things the reader will find are maps of County Donegal, County Kilkenny (southern part), and County Waterford (Dunarvan and Ardmore area), drawn specifically to help the researcher in dealing with the often confusing place naming patterns of Ireland. The Civil Parishes were often not exactly the same as the Catholic Parishes – causing all kinds of confusion. Tables of the names are included to go with the maps.

The next major section of the book is made up of 65 pages of vital records that list place of origin in Ireland (mostly deaths & marriages) from some 30 Canadian newspapers. The following is a pretty typical entry:

Died 20 Oct 1817 at Saint John NB – William Thompson, 27 a passenger in the brig Concord from Londonderry. he was a native of Achnacloy [Aughnacloy], Co. Tyrone; left a widow and one child – CG, 27 Oct 1817 [CG is the abbreviation that Punch used for the newspaper City Gazette, of St. John, New Brunswick.]

There are also lists of runaways and deserters, transported convicts, and indentured servants, which offer a vivid, if sometimes bleak, picture of Irish immigration to Canada.

Also included are maps showing Irish ports of embarkation, an index of surnames, and ships found listed in the book. The volume is loaded with previously untranscribed data – and will be of extreme interest to anyone with Irish-Canadian ancestry.

Family Search Indexing Update

The following Family Search Indexing update information was received from Paul Nauta, Public Affairs Manager for FamilySearch.

February 6, 2009: FamilySearch volunteers wrapped up 14 online indexing projects already in 2009 and continue to make good progress on the 38 open projects. There are two new projects from the 1930 Mexico Census this week, and the Colorado 1920 U.S. Census project is also new.

As FamilySearch continues to expand into international record collections, there is a growing, continual need for indexers who can read the respective languages. Even if a volunteer can only dedicate a few hours a month to an indexing project, when multiplied by thousands of online volunteers, small contributions of time by individuals can have a significant impact. Volunteers can register and participate immediately at www.familysearchindexing.org.

I have rearranged the following data by category.
