Historic Hastings by Gerald E. Boyce

£4.99

Product description

This book was originally published in 1967 to document the settlement and local history of Hastings County in Ontario, Canada up to 1966, this fine work has been long out of print. Author, Gerry Boyce writes "With 8,000 copies in circulation, one could presume that there would be no need for a reprint. Such is not the case. The book has been out of print for several years, but prices for used copies (sometimes in poor condition) have risen dramatically". Historic Hastings has stood the test of time -- as highly regarded today as when originally published. Readers and family history researchers will appreciate the new and expanded index in this edition. Larry McQuoid and the Quinte Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society contributed an improved and greatly expanded index to which the author has added additional entries for the new content in this edition. The original index in the 1967 edition excluded many family names listed in the chapters on individual municipalities, the new index includes all these names. This certainly will benefit genealogists. Generously illustrated with period photographs and maps.

There is an inscription on the flyleaf.
