15 April 2016: The Links page has been updated. The old "Services" section has been removed but there may still be some dead links pointing it from elsewhere in the site.
2 September 2012: Added a cemetery transcript for St. Mary's Anglican Cemetery, Harrigan Cove, NS.
16 July 2012: Updated the family file for Chrysostome McLellan and Annie Mahan.
8 May 2012: The 1940 US Census is now available to the public. It can be found online at http://1940census.archives.gov/. This particular database is free to search and the digital images may be downloaded free-of-charge. There is no nominal index: however, it can be searched by state, county and city. Also, maps outlining the individual enumeration districts are available for reference. My understanding is Ancestry and possibly others are indexing the census and will be adding the resulting database to their subscription-based services.
30 March 2012: I have updated the base code for the website and made some minor changes to the formatting. The content has not been updated. Users of older browsers may encounter some problems with the new design. If so, please upgrade your browser to the latest version.
28 August 2011: The book page has been updated to include my photo-essay Aboard the Irish Lass. This softcover photo book is available for $35 Canadian (includes shipping and handling within Canada and the USA only). Online ordering is possible.
18 August 2011: The vital statistics from newspapers compilations available on the book page have been updated to permit online ordering. Each of the three books' descriptive pages now include "Add to Cart" and "View Cart" buttons. Secure payments are made through PayPal. Please note that online ordering is only available for Canadian and US customers. International customers should contact me prior to placing their order as shipping is not included with overseas orders.
