A0555 – A Genealogists' Guide to Researching British Home Children A0555 – A Genealogists' Guide to Researching British Home Children
Author: Gloria F. Tubman  – soft cover – spiral binding, 55 pp.
Thousands of British Home Children were resettled in Canada between the 1870s and 1939. The social and economic causes that percipitated the export of orphaned and destitute children to Canada was a product of the times -- the effects of the industrial revolution and a lack of an adequate social safety net being the largest contributors. The child migration initiative was supported by the governments on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This book is a compilation of articles and columns that Tubman wrote in an effort to inform those who are interested in British Home Children movement, and to provide researchers with the information needed to research records of individual Home Children. Most of the articles were originally published in The Equity newspaper of Shawville, Quebec. The Quarrier Homes of Scotland article was published in Anglo Celtic Roots, the journal of the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa. All are reprinted in this volume with permission from the The Equity and Anglo Celtic Roots. Global Heritage Press, 2017

A1250 - The Silver Chief: Lord Selkirk A1250 - The Silver Chief: Lord Selkirk
Author: Lucille H. Campey - softcover, 208 pp.
Belfast, Prince Edward Island, founded in August 1803, owes its existence to Lord Selkirk. Selkirk's work in Canada extended beyond Belfast to Baldoon (later Wallaceburg) in Ontario, as well as to Red River, the precursor to Winnipeg.
"The Silver Chief", the fifth Earl of Selkirk spent an immense fortune helping Scottish Highlanders relocate themselves in Canada. The author shows that emigration took place in a carefully planned and controlled way and reveals the self-reliance, adaptability and steely determination of the Selkirk settlers. Natural Heritage Books, 2003

A1540 – Down and Out in Scotland: Researching Ancestral Crisis A1540 – Down and Out in Scotland: Researching Ancestral Crisis
Author: Chris Paton – soft cover, 56 pp.
It is perhaps one of greatest truisms of family history research that we will often find that the lives of our ancestors were best documented when the chips were truly down. There were many battles that our forebears fought for and against in Scotland, both on a personal level and as a part of the society within which they lived. There were the laws of the local parish church and the punishments awaiting those who breached kirk discipline; the struggles to avoid poverty and the stigma of being a debtor; the darkest moments of the soul, from mental health issues and illness, to murder and suicide; and the dramatic moments of rebellion, when our forebears drew a line in the sand against a perceived tyranny or democratic deficit. Illness, death, bigamy, abandonment, accidents, eviction, ethnic cleansing – a dramatic range of challenges across a lifetime, and at times, outright tragedy.

But through all of these episodes, there is an even greater story that emerges, of how our ancestors overcame such hardships. In this latest Unlock the Past guide, genealogist Chris Paton goes in search of the records of ancestral hardship in Scotland, to allow us to truly understand the situations that our ancestors had to endure and overcome across the generations, to help us become the people who we are today.

A1541 – With Axe and Bible: The Scottish Pioneers of N.B. – 1784-1874 A1541 – With Axe and Bible: The Scottish Pioneers of N.B. – 1784-1874
Author,Lucille H. Campey – soft cover, 224 pp.
New Brunswick’s enormous timber trade attracted the first wave of Scots in the late 18th century. As economic conditions in Scotland worsened, the flow of emigrants increased, creating distinctive Scottish communities along the province’s major timber bays and river frontages. While Scots relied on the timber trade for economic sustenance, their religion offered another form of support. It sustained them in a spiritual and cultural sense. These two themes, the axe and the bible, underpin their story. Using wide-ranging documentary sources, including passenger lists and newspaper shipping reports, the book traces the progress of Scottish colonization and its ramification for the province’s early development. The book is the first fully documented account of Scottish emigration to New Brunswick ever to be written.

Author: Lucille H. Campey - softcover, 184 pp.
Previous studies of early Scottish emigration to the New World have tended to concentrate on the miseries of evictions and the destruction of old communities. In this study of the influx of Scots to Prince Edward Island, the assumption that emigration was solely a flight from poverty is challenged. 'A Fine Class of Immigrants' is essential reading for individuals wishing to trace family links or deepen their understanding the Island's distinctive Scottish communities. The author accesses, for the first time, shipping sources like Lloyd's List and the Lloyd's Shipping Register. Natural Heritage Books, 2nd edition, 2001
