One of the earliest books about the history of Leeds and Grenville Counties is History of Leeds & Grenville, covering the period from1749 to 1879, written by Thaddeus Leavitt. If you’ve ever wondered about the origins of some of those stories, so has Canadian author and genealogist Robbie Gorr. Over the past several years he has delved deeper into the tales told by Leavitt, and shared his research in News & Views, the newsletter of the Leeds & Grenville Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society.
The Branch has just published the essays in The Things That Thaddeus Told Us, A Supplement to Leavitt’s History of Leeds & Grenville, complete with an Index. This book is now available through the OGS Marketplace as a digital download for $15.00, or through the Branch as a print publication for $35.00 plus shipping costs.
