Up To Rawdon

As many followers of this site will know, Daniel Parkinson of Toronto has published a two part study of early Rawdon settlement, which is also available in e-book format. The e-book gives one both volumes and allows searching. This is handy as some families show up in many chapters.

One may read all about the project at uptorawdon.com, which has many additional pages of information to peruse. One will also find free, original, research material, which is not found elsewhere on the internet.

Additional reviews may be read at http://www.lulu.com where Up To Rawdon has been a consistent sales leader in the history section. This is a self-published book, which is published to order and will be printed and mailed and in your hands in about ten days. The e-book is downloaded immediately on payment by credit card or PayPal.

It is almost a year since I published Up To Rawdon and have had fairly good sales. However,I think there are many people out there still to tap. People tell me they "plan " to buy and I want to say "what's stopping you".
Thanks for the boost -

Elizabeth Lapointe reviewed Up To Rawdon in the November issue of Families for the Ontario Genealogical Society, which contained Daniel’s article “Up To Rawdon Explained”.
Elizabeth wrote: “The detail of the genealogy — which is all footnoted — is astounding. … the author also gives an excellent social and historical account of Americans who went up to Rawdon after the American Revolution … the settlement of the Forks …biographies of men who were in the military, Irish-Catholic settlers and examples of Protestant and Catholic intermarriage . …

Up To Rawdon leaves the reader with the dual feeling that the book is far too long and wishing that it were even longer.” logging
There are many maps, photos and tables, genealogies and timelines … I was rather impressed with the scope of his work. And the amount of effort it took to do these family histories and then present them in the context of the area. …this is one resource that should be definitely be considered in your research plan.”
