New/Improved Canadian Websites and Blogs Week 17

Here are some of the websites and blogs that I have come across the week ending January 16, 2012. 

The Legal Resource Centre The Blogosaurus Lex blog (Legal Resource Centre of Alberta) One subject covered the The 1929 Person’s Case

Kinsey Family Genealogy The Blog If you are related to Stephen Vaughan Kinsey, this blog is for you. The blogger writes about a newspaper report on Google News that gives an account of Kinsey's move from Saskatoon to Manitoba in 1940.  

About Ottawa, Canada, Beechwood Cemetery Registers, 1873-1990
The five burial ledgers digitized in this database document interments at Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa, Ontario, from 1873 to 1990. The ledgers also contain names for some people who died before 1873 (as early as 1821) whose remains were later moved to Beechwood.

Susan’s Genealogy Blog A very interesting post in June, 2011 shows Joseph Mullin and his wife, Mary Ann, their five children, and how she searched the Ontario vital records to find this information.

Roots to the Past: Atlantic Canada's Genealogy Hub Diane Tibert has started a new blog to go with her newspaper column Roots to the Past that appears in local Maritime newspapers.  

The Quebec Family History Society Just received a press release from the society which says that "the website features several new sections, such as Gary’s Genealogical Picks, research tips, surname interests, and a bulletin board. 
QFHS members researching their ancestors in Quebec will benefit from the new Jacques Gagné Church Compilations in the members’ section. Long-time member Jacques Gagné has compiled historical information and the location of records for more than 1,000 English and French Protestant churches across the province, from 1759 to 1899".

Sask. Archives Board Photo Blog The blog invites the reader to look at the photo, and see are any that they recognize. They want to know if you know a location, a date? They say that they will post new photographs approximately once a week, so please come back to take another look.

Thank you for mentioning my blog on your site. To get to the post you mentioned, I recommend your readers put the name Mullin in my blog's search box. As you said, that post was from June, 2011. I have also posted blogs about researching in Ontario and Quebec. Your readers may find those posts by entering the names McQuire and Crysler in my search box.

Hi, Susan,

You have given great information here about researching Ontario and Quebec ancestry, and about the McQuire and Crysler families.

Good work!

Elizabeth, thanks for mentioning my blog, Roots to the Past. I'm just getting underway, and I have lots of plans for the new blog. At the moment, I have indexes posted for two books (History on the Old Guysborough Road and The Harvest Train) and a one-name study on William Mc/MacDonald.

Hi, Diane,

Great! Keep up the good work. I enjoy reading your blogs, since I am a Nova Scotian too, although now I live in Ottawa.
