I just wanted to share this weeks newsletter from my FHC. I helped organize it and part two should appear in the next one. If your site does not appear here, it should appear in next weeks.

Toronto Family History Centre Bulletin 47/2008 November 27, 2008
Editor: Gwen Armstrong
In this Bulletin
Announcements
Helen Billing returning next week - Gwen ecstatic
Happy Thanksgiving to our American subscribers



What’s New

Europeana

The Forum

One new question - more always needed



Were You Aware …

Italian Links and Guides

Announcements

Helen Billing, your real bulletin editor, will be back next week. I have enjoyed writing for you these past three weeks, and thank her for the opportunity. That doesn't mean I want her to go away again any time soon...

Additions to our Permanent Collections

We have received a donation of CD's from Shirley Lancaster. They are in the process of being catalogued and will be listed in an upcoming bulletin.

What’s New
James Thomson sent us a notice this past week of the launch of Europeana www.europeana.eu on 20 Nov 2008. Internet users around the world will be able to access more than two million books, maps, recordings, photographs, archival documents, paintings and films from national libraries and cultural institutions of the EU's 27 Member States. To read more about it check out the British Library press release. www.bl.uk/news/2008/pr...81120.html

Currently they are victims of their own success. With over 10 million hits per hour since its launch, they have had to temporarily shut down. They promise to be up and running again in mid-December after a major revamp of their servers.

The Forum

Questions:


Q1/47/2008. England

I’ve obtained a relative, Rose Kemp’s birth certificate; she was born in the St Pancras Workhouse in London, England in 1902. No father’s name or occupation is given. The mother is listed as an Emma Kemp who is a Domestic Servant of 97, Harrison Street, a short walk from the workhouse. I cannot find Emma Kemp in the 1901 England census and though workhouse records for the period exist and reside at the London Metropolitan Archives I can find no online source to assist me. Can anyone suggest other courses of action?

Answers:

Q1/46/2008. Ireland / England / Canada

Michael Joseph O'Meara was born in Boyle, Roscommon, Ireland, 7 Oct 1873. He immigrated to Canada about 1900. He joined the Toronto Police Force on 2 Oct 1900 and retired 22 Apr 1935. He had been a member of the West Surrey Militia in England. How would I confirm his membership in both organizations and is it possible to confirm his date of entry to Canada?

We are still working on this question from last week and hope to have some definite answers soon.

Were You Aware

It is no secret that our newletter has a decidedly British slant. We make no apologies, the British Isles are what the Toronto FHC volunteers are most familiar with. We are, however, aware that a great many of you are successfully searching in other countries.


According to Wikipedia, "as of the 2006 census 1,445,335 Canadians (4.6% of total population) consider themselves to be of Italian origin, as well as 4,360 (0.01% of the total population) who considered themselves as Sicilian. In 1881, only 1849 Canadians claimed to be Italian. A substantial influx began in the early twentieth century when over a hundred thousand Italians moved to Canada. They mainly immigrated to Toronto and Montreal, both of which still have large Italian communities. A second wave of immigration occured after the Second World War."



With this in mind I would like bring your attention to some terrific websites available for Italy. I do not have an extensive knowledge of Italian Family History and would like to thank Erminia Pisecny for her assistance. The links you find below have all come from her. In fact so many have come from her, that we will have to continue them in next week's bulletin.
