Goin' to the Corner Volume 2: An Update

The Elmsdale and Area Historical Society, located in the northwest corner on the province, has produced an Update to its book Goin' to the Corner Volume 2: An Update

A printed copy of the Update has been placed with the Alberton Museum; The MacNaught History Centre and Archives, Summerside; the Public Archives of PEI; and the UPEI Library. It includes a CD which has all the material in the Update on it. The Update covers errata in the book, new material that has been received by the committee over the past three years, plus material from new sources that have become available in the last three years (e.g 1921 Canadian census, 1940 US census, PEI marriage and death records, and recent obituaries). Copies can be made of the CD at those four locations.

Or if people prefer, they can email send an to and John can email a copy of the material in the Update. The Update also includes an Index to the Names in the Update plus an Index to the Names in Volume 1.

Copies of Volume 2 are still available for $40.00 from members of the Elmsdale and Area Historical Society (plus shipping) and from Bookmark in Charlottetown, the MacNaught History Centre and Archives in Summerside, Pridham's VandS in Alberton, Elmsdale Corner Gas and Convenience Store in Elmsdale and from the Alberton Museum (when it is open in the summertime).
