      Hi Ontario researchers:
      If you are wanting to find and buy a local history of a county or township or town in Ontario - particularly an old out-of-print history, you might want to add your name to the "What's New" newsletter from Global Genealogy (in Milton, Ontario). The newsletter of January 29, 2003 had a lot of interesting books (see below). The information about subscribing is below too. I think that I get a newsletter every 2 or 3 weeks, so it isn't overwhelming.
