Carmen Rochon has sent along almost 1,000 historical newspaper clippings from the Ottawa Journal covering the period beginning about 1898.
We have been posting batches of these clippings to three Facebook Groups, Bytown or Bust,
the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, and the Fort Coulonge, La Passe, and Westmeath History Forum.
Consider following some of these groups to connect with many other genealogical researchers.
To go along with Garry McFadden's wonderful original photographs, above, the following is an article from the Ottawa Journal,
dated October 3, 1969. This article, from Carmen Rochon, gives us some historical background to Garry's contemporary photographs.
The world is good.
