February 10, 2007 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM (Saturday) Introduction to SCOTTISH Family History Research Workshop Leader: Jane MacNamara This day-long workshop is suitable for beginning genealogists, or those just getting started on Scottish research. The session begins with some basic concepts of Scottish genealogy and introduce the major 19th and 20th century family history sources--census and civil registration. Participants will be shown how to access these records locally and how to search efficiently (and economically.) Building on these "recent" records, the session will move on to Old Parochial Registers and other church records, dating from the 1500s to 1855. Types of records, terminology, tips on how best to read a parish register, and the pros and cons of accessing these records on microfilm or on the Internet will be discussed. The day winds up with a look at the wonderful resources for family historians in Scottish records of inheritance, explaining the concept of "heritable" versus "moveable" property. Jane MacNamara is an acknowledged expert and popular speaker on the topic of researching family history in Scotland. Though Jane lables her workshop as "an introduction" family history researchers, from beginners to experienced, will discover new strategies and resources for discovering their Scottish roots. The inexpensive workshop fee includes workshop registration plus coffee, tea, bottled water and snacks.

Each bond was consulted in order to verify the names of the future husband and wife and the date of the bond. Many indexes exist for Catholic marriages that took place in Quebec and in Ontario. It is more difficult to trace a marriage that took place in a Protestant church. Marriage bonds were prepared only for Protestant marriages by licence. The groom was required to enter into a bond with one or two people (sureties) who knew him and who were prepared to guarantee to the Crown that no legal impediment to the marriage existed. After obtaining the bond, a licence was issued and the marriage took place a few days later.

Before the state-sponsored immigration program that sent nearly 800 women known as Filles du Roi to Qu�bec, 262 brave and adventurous women made the journey to New France on their own. Sent by relatives and religious organizations or enlisting on their own account, these women did not benefit from a paid passage and dowry drawn from the King's treasury, but they did face the same if not worse hardships and dangers. Known as the Filles � Marier or "marriageable girls," they were the first single women to set foot in the colony since its return from the English in 1632.

Quebec Ports for 2 Jul 1908 to 13 Oct 1910 has been completed and the index, comprising of 284,365 listings from 586 ship arrivals. Well worth the visit.

    1. New List Management software - Rootsweb
    2. Murray Pletsch
    3. Dear Listers: Rootsweb is changing to new list management software! http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/migrate_sched.html This list is scheduled to move today. Any differences you notice should be minor: The "-L" is being dropped from the official list name, but you will be able to both sub and post using the "old" name,with the -L, or the new one without it. If you use email headers to filter list mail in your email program, your filters may need adjusting. Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the layout, volume and issue numbers of the list digests. New instructions will be added to the digests -- please read them. If your digests arrive in a different format than you are used to and you would like it changed, contact me. If you are subscribed to the list in both L and D modes using the same email address, you will find that you will no longer be subbed to the Digest after the move. The new software doesn't permit the same address to be subbed in both L and D modes. If you want to continue to be subbed to both the list posts and the digest, you will need to use two different email addresses. If you run into anything unusual or confusing with mail from this list that could be related to the changeover, let me know. Bye for now.......Murray Murray Pletsch <[email protected] *OR* [email protected]>

    1. Matters/Mattars
    2. Pat Marshall
    3. I am looking for information on the family of a Jessie Matters who married Hugh John Chisholm at St. Joseph's Church, Kelly's Cross, P.E.I. I believe I may have found them on the 1881 census but would like to be sure. I think her parents may have been William & Roseanna and she is a three year old on the 1881 census. I have a copy of the Certificate of Marriage but it does not list the parent's names. I also think the family may have gone to the Malden, MA area and that is where she met Hugh John Chisholm. One of the Witnesses on her marriage certificate is a Frederick Matters and he may be a brother or a cousin. Any help greatly appreciated! Pat Marshall Stirling, Ontario
