Research Guide to Canadian Genealogical Resources at the Connecticut State Library
This research guide is an introduction to several major Canadian genealogical resources in the State Library's collection and how to best utilize them. The presence of many of these resources is the result of one individual, Robert R. Bisaillon. An avid genealogist, author, and teacher, Mr. Bisaillon amassed an extensive collection of materials dealing with Acadian and French-Canadian genealogy. After his death on October 25, 1994, it was announced that he had bequeathed his book collection to the Connecticut State Library. It is through his generosity that the Connecticut State Library is able to offer many of the following Canadian genealogical sources: Other Institutions with Relevant Canadian Collections Introductory Resources
A list of introductory books on Canadian genealogy at the Connecticut State Library follows. The list provided below is by no means exhaustive. Researchers should consult the library's main catalogs, the Manuscripts and Archives Catalog, and State Archives research guides to ascertain if there are additional resources. Baxter, Angus.

The brief description is intended to help the reader determine if this is the book that is needed for their library. Some of the unit history books written at the end of the war are sanitized, meaning there are few references to US losses or casualties. I will be glad to provide a better description or any information from these books to assist in your research.
Many of these books are printed prior to 1965. Except for the booklets, very few are paperbacks. The booklets and manuals of last two categories are paperbacks issued to troops during the war. I've color-coded the Titles to indicate which books were printed before the end of the war, as follows:
Book Titles (in purple) = printed during or immediately after the War
Book Titles (in green) = printed after the war. However, some are modern reprints of older books.

Preschool-2. 0-439-98840-3. Hdbk. $19.99 Rating: E How fortunate for readers that one of Canada's most established children's fiction authors has turned her pen to picture books as well. Cora Taylor's adaptation of Over in the Meadow has all the warmth of the original verse, and Pat Stevens, who has illustrated several non-fiction books, interprets Taylor's verse with beautiful acrylic full-colour, double page illustrations. Each verse begins, "Out on the prairie" and presents a series of mother animals commanding offspring to carry out various activities. As in the original rhyme, the animals number from one to ten. From the mother and baby antelope leaping in the warm spring sun to the mother coyote nuzzling with her ten babies as she softly admonishes them to go to sleep, the depiction of mother and baby animals is gentle, while the little ones show spunkiness that children will identify with. Meadowlark babies sing "Tweet-a-bow", tadpoles wiggle, baby deer mice squeak and squirm " 'neath a tangle of twine". The individuality of each baby and enjoyment of activities with the mothers is so nicely portrayed by Stevens, making this a good choice either to share with a child or to read aloud. The illustrations also give many details about the animals and their habitats.

Introduction Biography is the study of famous individuals, both living and dead. While there are biographical books on many famous individuals (both popular and academic), there are resources that encapsulate information about an individual and provide resources to learn more about him or her. These include biographical dictionaries and encyclopedias. Many resources will only detail the individuals the fit a certain category, such as women, latinos, Americans, writers, scientists, etc. Autobiographies are written by the subject. Care must be taken when conducting biographical research because the information may not be objective. Biographies written by critics may be unduly negative, while those written by fans may be too positive. To remedy this, find as many different sources as possible to balance out the viewpoints in the sources.

Deaf Biographies
A Selected Bibliography
The Gallaudet University Library contains a large amount of materials about deaf people and about hearing people involved with the deaf world. This bibliography suggests some books and other resources for finding information about those people. Only books and other resources containing information about many deaf people are included in this list; the Library has hundreds of books about specific deaf individuals, far too many to be included here. Use ALADIN to find those books about individual deaf people.
The best single place to begin is the Gallaudet University Library guide to deaf biographies by Thomas R. Harrington, a computer database of over 4000 references to biographies of deaf people and a few hearing people significant to the deaf. For most persons, a very brief biographical outline is given, followed by references to fuller information about that person in over two hundred books and/or periodicals. An ethnicity index at the end indicates which of these people are known to belong to certain minority groups. All the short biographies included in the "Books" section below, plus hundreds more, are included in this database. This database is available online. It can be reached through the Deaf-related resources section on the Gallaudet University Library home page
