A person posted on the NS Mailing List that the Colchester Archives’s databases are back online at www.colchesterhistoreum.ca.
The database has been offline for quite a while now, and I agree that it is very useful when researching Colchester County families in the Truro area.

The Spring 2012 edition of the newly-revamped Anglo-Celtic Roots has just been received, and the new format lends itself very well to the writings of the members of BIFHSGO.
Under the title of "Family History Research" are four articles - Perhaps Love: A Postcard from the First World War; Little Girl Lost – and Found; The Yacht Armide; and Eleanor, Ellen and Francis.
In "Techniques and Resources" are the articles The Cream of the Crop, and The Bookroom.
There is the "BIFHSGO News" section in which they have put the Notice of Annual Meeting and Minutes of 2011 AGM; Website Access; Great Moments: June Meeting; and the Membership Report.
Anglo-Celtic Roots is published four times a year; this is in addition to an electronic newsletter issued once a month via email.
Over 20 informative and interesting articles have been reprinted and made available online as "Classic Articles" at www.bifhsgo.ca/cpage.php?pt=33, while past issues are available in the "Members Only" section at http://bifhsgo.ca/members.php.
