REMINDER: New/Updated CANADIAN Websites, Blogs, Facebook, and Newspaper Articles Blog

Don’t forget to check my blog every Monday morning for my New/Updated CANADIAN Genealogical, History and Heritage Websites, Blogs, Facebook, and Newspaper Articles.

There will be newspaper articles that will cover such stories as Library and Archives Canada deal with Ancestry.ca leaves personal information vulnerable, and government cancels public viewing of designs for War of 1812 monument plus Blogs, Facebook, and Websites – and even a Video about a piece of Canadian history sent home from Kirriemuir (Scotland).

There is something of interest for everyone!

Panel Discussion and Roundtable About the New Canadian Museum of History Will Be Held in Gatineau, Quebec

The Museum of Civilization has issued a press release about a meeting to be held at the museum in Gatineau, Quebec Thursday evening January the 31st. I will be listening in on the webcasts to see what is being said -

“After visiting nine cities, the Canadian Museum of Civilization will hold the last panel discussion and roundtable of its cross-country tour back on home soil at the Museum on Thursday, January 31 to invite the public to participate in the creation of the new Canadian Museum of History.

The new exhibition gallery, which will be inaugurated in 2017, will present the national history of Canada and its people. Representatives from the Museum are travelling the country asking Canadians what they would like to see in this new exhibition.

And now, people in the Ottawa/Gatineau area will be able to give their opinions on the themes, personalities, events and milestones that tell the Canadian story, and choose the objects that they would include in the new Canadian Museum of History.

The public is invited to attend panel and roundtable discussions on Thursday, January 31, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Grand Hall of the Canadian Museum of Civilization, at 100 Laurier Street in Gatineau, Quebec.

The evening will kick off with a dynamic panel discussion—My History Museum: A to Zed —where special guests will be asked what they would put in a Canadian history museum of their making. It will be followed by a roundtable discussion where the public will be asked how they would like to engage with their national history museum. How can the Museum meet their needs and interests, and what would they like to see included in it?

For those who cannot attend the evening event in person, a virtual roundtable discussion will take place simultaneously. The panel discussions will also be webcast live. To participate in the virtual roundtable and watch the panel discussions, the public will be able to log on during the event through the Museum's website at www.civilization.ca.

Visit the "My History Museum" website to confirm your attendance at the panel and roundtable discussions. If you cannot attend the session in person or virtually, you can also share your ideas with us on the website by participating in a range of activities and by completing the online survey”.

BIFHSGO's Anglo-Celtic Roots - Spring 2012



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.

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.
