Genealogy and the Law in Canada
by Dr. Margaret Ann Wilkinson

125 pgs (2010: Ontario Genealogical Society)
Digital records and broad access to the Internet have revolutionized the ways in which genealogists approach their investigations — and has made it much easier to locate information relevant to any particular genealogical inquiry from sources often separated by vast distances. The law, on the other hand, remains very connected to particular geographic locations. There are legal differences depending on whether you are doing personal research or working for others for pay. This book will discuss the relevant laws — access to information, protection of personal data and copyright — applicable to those working within Canada with materials that are located, at the time you are doing the work, in Canada. The opinions expressed in this book are not intended as legal advice.

Conserving, Preserving, and Restoring Your Heritage by Kennis Kim
171 pgs (2010: Ontario Genealogical Society)
History surrounds us, in museums, in our community and in our homes. Whether objects were bought, found or inherited, these artifacts offer glimpses into the past — a time, place, event or person we wish to remember and share with the future. As custodians of pieces of our history, we are faced with how to maintain these items. Professional conservator Kim tells us how. Topics discussed include: creating an accession list; what are conservation, restoration and preservation?; deciding on display, storage or using the artifact; common threats, such as light, humidity, insects and rodents; and when to call in a professional. Here’s all you need to determine what you can do yourself to preserve your precious things for future generations. 
Genealogical Standards of Evidence: A Guide for Family Historians
by Brenda Dougall Merriman 
116 pgs (2010: Ontario Genealogical Society)
Genealogical evidence is the information that helps us to identify an individual or the relationship between individuals. In describing how we establish or argue points of identification through the use of various sources, we often use such words as "evidence," "proof" or "documentation." Brenda Dougall Merriman takes readers through the process of research and identification, along the way examining how the genealogical community developed standards of evidence and documentation, what those standards are and how they can be applied. As a supplement to courses, workshops and seminars, this book provides both an in-depth and inexpensive reference, perfect for compiling and checking research notes.
