Received at the Library

Recent journal and newsletter receipts may be of interest to Society members:

In the fall 2012 issue of the Nova Scotia Genealogist, there's an announcement that after 2013 the journal will only be available in electronic format.  An article about the Hillcrest [Alberta] Mine Disaster of 1914, Canada's largest mine disaster, lists what is known about the 23 Nova Scotia victims, many of whom were English or Scottish immigrants.  On p.140 (and not in the table of contents) is a list of free genealogy podcast sites.  Many sources relating to Nova Scotia research are listed in various notices throughout the issue.

Family Chronicle for March/April 2013 has short, interesting articles on Italian immigrants' naming practices; fords and ferries; research logs; researching the British Army abroad; and more.

The January 2013 issue of The New England Historical and Genealogical Register contains articles on several New England families, including surnames: Adcocke, Sutton, Pratt, Harris, Bacon, Sherman, Dunbar and Whitten.

Newsletters were received from the Dennis Historical Society (March 2013, includes an article on the Fisk family, four master mariner brothers); the Falmouth Genealogical Society (Jan.-Apr. 2013, announcing meetings for 2013, and giving reports on presentations on a research trip to Portugal, Marcia Melnyk's two talks at our joint meeting. and "Paddy on the Net: Irish genealogy databases"); and the Lothropp Family Foundation (spring 2013, including notes on the passing of the Society's founder Helen Lathrop Tabor).
