Blogger Showcases Canada’s Veterans' Week 2012 (November 5th-11th)


(Ottawa, 02 November 2012) GenealogyCanada.blogspot.com—a daily blog that has covered Canadian genealogy, heritage, and history news since 2008—will again publish a series of posts during this year’s Veterans’ Week by focusing on all aspects of the Canadian military, highlighting events occurring from coast to coast to coast.

“Veterans Week, which takes place this year from November 5th to the 11th, is a very important resource for readers of this blog. It allows us to remember those who fought in Canada’s wars, starting with the Boer War (1899-1902) to the War in Afghanistan (2002–2011), and to say ‘Thank you’ to those who gave so much for Canada”, says the blog’s creator, Elizabeth Lapointe.

Recently, Elizabeth became the newest addition to www.GeneaBloggers.com, Thomas MacEntee’s genealogy website and newsletter. Her column on Canadian genealogy news and resources for those seeking their Canadian roots has just been launched, and with the column, Elizabeth will continue to offer her breadth of knowledge on Canadian genealogy, and on cross-border migration between Canada and the U.S.

“I am very happy to write a column for GeneaBloggers, and to work with Thomas MacEntee, a world-renowned genealogy blogger. The second column will be ‘Canadians in the American Civil War,’ she says.
