The Bicentennial Signature Event in Amherstburg, Ontario to commemorate the War of 1812 will take place on the weekend of August 3, 2012.
They say that it will be a community “totally immersed in 1812” during the festival.
There will be a Genealogy Pavilion – Ontario Genealogy Society & Certificate Program on the Saturday, as well as a Grand Parade Downtown, a First Nations presentation at Kings Navy Yard Park, and a Destiny Art Exhibit, and much more!
Go to www.1812amherstburg.com to find out about the summer long program.
I have just published two booklets -
The War of 1812: Canada and the United States, and Migration: Canada and the United States.
They are available for purchase through Global Genealogy at http://globalgenealogy.com, and the National Institute of Genealogical Studies at www.genealogicalstudies.com
