May 2024

ParksCanadaHistory.com celebrates its tenth anniversary this month! My thanks to Parks/Parcs Canada for their gracious permission allowing me to create digital editions of their publications. A heartfelt thanks to those individuals who've contributed materials these past ten years. Lastly, my toque is off to Dr. Alan MacEachern who provided early guidance to help get this labour of love off and running. While I continue to struggle to find new documents to scan, this month actually includes a collection of new materials.
