    I love this book! The detail is incredible and the stories add depth to the lives of our ancestors that would otherwise be forgotten. I learned many new things about the Canadian origins of my family. This will be a useful tool in my family tree research for quite some time. I purchased the ebook because I couldn't wait to read about my family's origins in Rawdon, but I am now thinking about buying the books so that I have a permanent copy.

    I received my two books today and I am impressed. The electronic version is nice to have for research but there is nothing like a book in your hand. I am a book collector at heart so they are proudly on my shelf now. I cannot express my gratitude for the work you have done on behalf of all of us from Rawdon. I do similar work but not on that magnitude. It’s now the family bible for all Rawdon families. Congratulations and for those that have yet to order, its their loss. Thanks again.

    Daniel Parkinson's book Up To Rawdon Part Two tracing the history of more than 100 families who emigrated from Great Britain to the Rawdon, Quebec, area between the 1820s and 1850s is an astonishing work. Parkinson obviously spent many years compiling this material. Each of the settlers and their families is described in great detail in separate chapters. Many were veterans who fought in the Napoleonic wars under Gen. Wellington and gave up their military pensions to acquire free land in Canada. Some fell on hard times while others went on to great success in the new world. The two-volume set is written in an easy-to-read narrative style. The use of bold-face type for chapter titles, names, heads and sub-heads makes for an attractive package. The footnotes are very helpful and not over-written as many authors seem to think is essential these days.
