BOOK - History of the Settlement of Upper Canada, With Special Reference to The Bay of Quinte. (Ontario)
By William Canniff.
This book grew from modest beginnings into a comprehensive history. The author originally accepted the responsibility to assemble a paper on the topic of the settlement of the Bay of Quinte Region. The "paper grew into a book on the Bay of Quinte Region. As the work proceeded, Canniff soon realized that in order to prepare a book about the settlement of the Bay of Quinte Region, one had to discuss many topics that concerned the entire province. The final result was this substantial and highly regarded book, which provides an informed insight into the history of the entire province as it was known in 1869 with a focus on the the Bay of Quinte region. Originally published in 1869. This historical reprint by Global Heritage Press This book begins shipping on 19 Feb. 2008. Accepting orders now

NEW ARTICLES - The Global Gazette

Using Maps For Family History Research
By: Shirley Gage Hodges.
To really understand our ancestors we need to learn about the geographical locations that they lived in. The place that they lived in isn't just a speck on a map. We have to understand how the geographic area they lived in may have influenced where they went to church and where they went to record their births and marriages. A natural feature such as a river or mountain may have greatly influenced their decisions.
