Latest Unlock the Past books now available in Canada

My latest book is amongst four new Unlock the Past (www.unlockthepast.com.au) titles now available in Canada from Global Genealogy (www.globalgenealogy.com):

A Beginner's Guide to British and Irish Genealogy
By Chris Paton, 2016
CAN $18

Chris Paton takes you through the key record sets that will help you get underway with your family history research. He introduces you to the family history societies and archives that can assist your efforts, and provide a little context to the ancestral landscape within which your ancestors once lived, and into which you will soon be immersed. Along the way he will point out some of the major differences in record types to be found in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and the Crown Dependencies of the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. In each chapter Chris also provides a steer towards further books which can further develop your skills as you become more experienced with the subject matter, making this an invaluable introduction.

Death Certificates and Archaic Medical Terms - Second Edition
(Australian perspective)
By H. Smith, 2016
CAN $17

The author examines the history and evolution of death certificates. When did they start? What is on them? What were the legal requirements? What does it mean when a death is certified? Why aren't all deaths certified? It also gives meanings to a number of archaic terms found on death certificates such as cachexia, breakbone fever, byssinosis, coeliac passion, dipsomania, inanition and Potter's Rot. This second edition has been fully updated and expanded, and is double the size of the first, with hundreds more archaic medical terms included.

Don't forget that Unlock the Past books can also be purchased a wee bit further south in the United States from Martha Mercer's Maia's Books store. Martha only lists a small number of books from the publisher on her website at www.maiasbooks.com, but she does hold stock of most of them - drop her an email or call and she can give you details on costs and postage etc. For a full list of my own UTP titles, please visit the books section of this blog at http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/p/my-books.html.
