GTHS's DNA for Genealogy

  • Stittsville Legion

The Goulbourn Township Historical Society presents DNA for Genealogy. DNA testing has become a serious research tool which may help break down some “brick walls” encountered in plotting a family tree. On April 8, at the Stittsville Legion, Jason Porteous, a project administrator for the Porteous Surname Project (which is hosted on the Family Tree DNA site), will be covering the different types of DNA testing available and discussing some of the actual sites and tools that can be used to do research into one match result although he will be focusing on the use of autosomal DNA. Jason recently assisted a man whose mother has an unknown father. From her test results her son was able to zero in on a very likely individual who should be her dad, a good example of how DNA can work in genealogy. The presentation starts at 1:30 and admission, parking and refreshments are free. And as usual, remember “tell a neighbour, bring a friend”.

GTHS prsents "What Went Down in Struggle Town?"

  • Goulbourn Museum

In May the GTHS will present "What Went Down in Struggle Town?" Join us at the Goulbourn Museum on May 13 at 1:30 as we look back at the history of Stanley Corners. Settlement of land in Upper Canada became a priority for the British Government following the conclusion of the War of 1812. Discharged soldiers who accepted land grants were the first to settle in Goulbourn with their presence creating a line of defense for Upper Canada against the Americans.

At the intersection of 9th line and Regional Road 5 (Flewellyn and Huntley Roads), the small community of Stanley’s Corners began to form around a stopping point on the road to Ottawa. Nicknamed Struggle Town by the early Irish settlers, the history of Stanley’s Corners is marked by success, prosperity and tragedy.

Were the settlers justified in nicknaming the community Struggle Town? Tracey Donaldson, Acting Manager and Acting Education Officer Sarah Holla from the Goulbourn Museum present "What Went Down in Struggle Town?" This presentation will examine the settlement, historic figures, and structures, which have defined the narrative of Stanley’s Corners. It accompanies the Museum’s outdoor exhibition, which will formally launch during the summer event, Father’s Day Flashback: Ireland’s Own in June 2017. As usual, attendance, parking and refreshments are free. And remember, “tell a neighbour, bring a friend”.

It is quite timely in that July 1st is the 101st Anniversary of the Battle at the Somme.

Canadian Historic Battlefields: memorials and cemeteries: Amsterdam to Paris

Visit some of the most iconic historic locales of the twentieth century, from Amsterdam to Paris to Gllipoli. Al Sangster will focus on WW1 and WW11 battlegrounds and memorial sites, as well as associated historic towns and villages.

WW1 sites include Ypres Salient and the Somme area, including Vimy Ridge and Beaumont Hamel. WW11 sites include Dunkirk; Dieppe and Normandy with Amsterdam, Brussel and Bruges.  In addition, Camp Westerbrok will be featured. Lest we forget, this talk is particularly poignant as we celebrate Canada 150, because July 1 is not only the 150th anniversary of Confederation, but is also the 101st Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, a defining moment in the history of our nation.

History of Goulbourn – Caretaker of Dreams

History of Goulbourn – Caretaker of Dreams

  • Richmond Legion

You’re in for a treat as the Goulbourn Township Historical Society digitally reprises the Millennium Pageant “Caretaker of Dreams” on Saturday March 25th, 2017 at the Richmond Legion. The Play was written by Barbara Bottriell, directed by Shelagh Mills and produced by the Goulbourn Millennium Project Committee.

This is the story of Goulbourn Township from the early Richmond settlement in 1818 to the youths’ vision of the future beyond 2000. It was conceived not as a history lesson, but as recognition of the achievements of the township pioneers. The play was initially planned as a millennial project, but also became a record of our history as the Province on Ontario decreed that Goulbourn Township would disappear with the expanded border of the City of Ottawa in 2000.

The Goulbourn Historical Society was sponsor of the project and the play was produced by the Goulbourn Millennium Project Committee chaired by Jean Shaw.

This was a great community event including over 100 Township actors, musicians and dancers supported by Dance Director Christine Delorme-Lamarche, Sets by Ron Martin, Lighting by Paul Gardner, Musical Director Barbara Bottriell, Costumes by Lynn Griffiths and Production co-ordination by Hilary Dick.

The pageant was held November 22-25 2000 in the then new Theatre of the Performing Arts at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville. Videographer Sandy Durocher recorded this spectacular event.

It is this recording transformed into a digital format by Russell Mason, that we will be showing at the Richmond Legion as our March community event. Show time is 1:30pm. The Legion is located at 6430 Ottawa Street, Richmond. As always, admission, parking and refreshments are free. And remember, tell a neighbour, bring a friend!

Public Meeting Concerning a Proposed Plan of Subdivision in Manotick

Public Meeting Concerning a Proposed Plan of Subdivision in Manotick

  • Manotick Arena Community Centre/Hall

During the review of the Manotick Secondary Plan, Councillor Moffatt hosted a meeting to speak specifically about vacant lands throughout the village and how those lands could be developed. It was an opportunity for the community to determine the future of these lands rather than waiting for a developer to come in and do it for us. One such property that was discussed was the vacant parcels at the south end of the village, directly across from Century Road East, sandwiched in between Kelly Marie Drive and Island View Drive. These lands are 5721, 5731 and 5741 Manotick Main Street.

Following our meeting on January 22nd, 2015, Regional Group begun acquiring these parcels and put together a development proposal akin to their eQuinelle project in Kemptville and similar in nature to their Village Walk development in Manotick. While Councillor Moffatt briefly highlighted this proposal at our November 15th Town Hall meeting, there will also be a public meeting held on Thursday, January 19th, between 7:00pm and 9:00pm at the Manotick Arena to discuss this proposal. We hope to see you there. For more information about this proposal, please visit www.ottawa.ca/devapps.
