Progress on Digitizing Tweedsmuir Community Histories

In January I reported that "135 GB of digitized material including Home and County newsletters, original constitution, 3 published history books, 11 Tweedsmuir histories and more" had been digitized in a Women's Institute project funded by the Documentary Heritage Communities Program.

With continued funding there are now 72 Tweedsmuir histories online for locations on the map. The majority are in Eastern Ontario where the project is based. They are: Amherst Island (6)
Appleton (1); Apsley (3); Arnprior (7); Balsam Hill (18); Braeside (4); Burnstown  (4); Clay Bank  (1); Delaware (2); Galetta (1); Glasgow (4); McGregor (1); North Tarentorus (1); Pine Grove (1); Ramsay (5); Renfrew South District (3); Stewartville (6); Teeswater  (1); West Lorne (1); White Lake (1); Willow Run (1).
All these digitized copies can be browsed and searched, including for names in the full text, from here.

A few additional volumes under What's New are for Sidney South, Demorestville, Bloomfield, Solway and Quinte.
