Sandra Roberts from Global Genealogy told me that two books frequently requested, but long out of print are now reissued.
Valley Irish (Ottawa Valley – Carleton, Lanark & Renfrew Counties), by Carol Bennett-McCuaig & D. W. McCuaig
“… documents the Irish settlement in the old District of Bathurst (part of the modern counties of Carleton, Lanark and Renfrew), drawing on the history of nineteenth century Ireland to explain why the people left their native land, and how these events affected the Ottawa Valley. In addition, she has profiles a cross-section of the old families of the area.”
In Search of Lanark, a historical overview of its towns, villages & townships (Lanark County, Ontario), by Carol Bennett-McCuaig & D. W. McCuaig
“… a historical overview of Lanark County’s towns, villages and townships. Each community’s chapter features a written historical sketch by Carol Bennett-McCuaig and photos of interest by D. W. McCuaig. Many individual settlers are mentioned as are noteable persons and families.”
