Two newspaper column this week

Janice Nickerson and Dr. Fraser Dunford, two Ontario genealogists, have newspaper columns this week in area newspapers.

Janice continues on with her monthly column in the City Centre Mirror by writing GENEALOGY WITH JANICE: What’s in your closet?

Old documents tell your family’s history and they may be hidden in your mother's or grandmother’s closet for safe keeping until it is discovered one day by yourself, or another person. What a find!

To find out what you may possibly find, go to the newspaper article at

Janice’s website is at

And Fraser Dunford continues with his column, and this time he writes about census in Ontario.

Fraser is a professional genealogist and member of Kawartha Branch, OGS, and former executive director of the Ontario Genealogical Society, and he has written a column called The  Amateur Genealogist: How To Read A Census.

They both offer sage advice. They have been at the game for a while, so to speak, and they offer good advice.

Articles at

Since 2002, from time to time, I used to contribute articles on Canadian genealogy for a column called "Canadian Connections" on Illya D'Addezio's website, Genealogy Today, at

They are still on his site, and when I took a look at them again, it brought me back to thinking of the time I spent writing for Illya, and the many pleasant memories of researching the subjects and getting them published.

They covered all subjects, from “Canadians 'Out West'” to "Maritimers in the 'Boston States'" to "The Irish in Canada" to “Canada Remembers” to “1906 Canadian Census Released Today”, and more.

If you get a chance to take a look at the articles I wrote, there still is lots of good information in them, and it will provide you with an interesting peek into my life as a genealogical writer.
