Up To Rawdon (Quebec)

Some years ago, this book Up To Rawdon was reviewed in Families, and Daniel has since written a few essays for Families over the years, so I know him well, and he is a great genealogical researcher and writer.  

His latest update on his website at was to tell us that he had attended the 20th Annual Rawdon Family Fair hosted by the United and Anglican Churches of the community on July 11. 

He had some photo albums on display and reference material available and sat in the shade of an open-sided tent on the Anglican Rectory Grounds, to answer inquiries from those who came by.
Please email him if you have ancestors who came from Rawdon, Quebec. You can email him at
