The Library and Archives Canada has just released a new version of the Census of Canada, 1871 database. This first general census covered the four provinces that were then part of Confederation: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
The new version includes suggestions for corrections received from users in recent months, as well as revised district and sub-district information.
On May 18th, 2013, there will be a meeting of the Quinte OGS Branch at which John D Reid from the blog Anglo-Celtic Connections, will present a talk about What's New in Genetic Genealogy?
The DNA we each carry in trillions of cells of our body is a natural genealogical record waiting to be read. Understanding based on new discoveries is becoming available to us all through personal DNA tests at ever more reasonable cost offered on a commercial basis.
The presentation will discuss how you can find connections to cousins back a few generations and gain insight into your deep ancestry through autosomal DNA tests, which can be taken equally by men and women.
The talk will take place at Quinte West City Hall Library, 7 Creswell Drive, Trenton, Ontario
