Extra news items 21 July 2015

Here are some news items which have come across my desk this morning -

Malcolm Moody of the Archives CD Books Canada tells us that they are having their Mid-Summer SALE!! It is already under way and almost all of their Canadian made digital products have been reduced by 50%!! And you can’t afford to let a sale like this run for too long, so jump on the “bandwagon” while you can. 

To see what is on sale go to their “home” page at and select the “CANADA” choice from the left hand column. (Or go to your favorite Province if you prefer.) 

Take a minute to look at these photos of Images of National Parks in Canada on Flickr. They are beautiful! 

The national parks are protected areas established under federal legislation to preserve Canada's natural heritage for public understanding, appreciation and enjoyment. The parks are maintained for future generations and have existed in Canada for well over a century. 

Gwyneth Pearce, Secretary of the Toronto Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society is pleased to announce that the fifth annual Toronto History Lecture will take place on Wednesday 5 August 2015 at the City of Toronto Archives.

As they mark the four-year centenary of the First World War, it is fitting that the topic of the 2015 Lecture is Returned Men: Toronto’s Veterans in the Great War’s Aftermath. Historian Jonathan Scotland will examine the consequences, aftermath, and impact of the War and how Toronto’s “returned men” tried to reintegrate into civilian life. 

This event is free to attend but advance reservation is required and space is limited. For details, visit

Until next time, this is what crossed my desk this morning.

More Holiday Gift Ideas

Here are some nore places to check which has books/CDs you may like either for yourself or for someone else during the Holiday Season -

In 2008, the Ontario Genealogical Society, and Dundurn Press entered a joint partnership in which the OGS would edit the books and Dundurn Press would publish them. Together, they have published many books on Canadian genealogy.

Families, the quarterly journal of the OGS (of which I am the editor) has regular excerpts from the books and reviews of books from their catalogue.

The OGS e-Store website has books at

Global Genealogy, located near Toronto, is another good source of genealogy books, maps, and CDs.

They just came through their 20th year of operation, and they have published their “Top 10 Gift Ideas for the history and genealogy enthusiast on your list” at

They also have two of my research booklets for sale — The War of 1812: Canada and the United States and Migration: Canada and the United States — that you might enjoy as a gift for a loved one, or even yourself!

And right down the road from us in Manotick is Archive CD Books Canada Malcolm Moody and his wife, Chris, carry a huge selection of older local Canadian history books that they have scanned and published on CDs in electronic document format.

What makes their business unique is that they take much care and effort in scanning each of the books (and maps, too), so it’s like buying the book in its natural form, with its resulting high quality and readability, which is rare when it comes to scanned books. The CDs are easy to use, reasonably-priced, and backed by the Moody’s expertise and broad subject knowledge.

So if you are wondering what you could possibly get for a gift for the genealogist on your list, these are some of the places you can visit for ideas of what they would like to see under the tree this Christmas!
