At workshops, frequently we wear our surnames, be they as a list on our name tag, on our note taking material, or on our clothing.  Consider having a shirt made promoting your book(s) and wearing it to family, genealogy and research repositories and/or gatherings.

The Registry of War Ration Books, including 83 Canadian books can be found at the link below. For those of you not familiar with food rationing, during World War Two the government issued ration stamps in books to each family member. There were four series of books, and there was a
complicated maze of instructions (typically published in the newspaper) as to which stamps were valid at any given time.

Prior to this project at Genealogy Today, the largest known private collection of ration books was a 900-book collection housed in Colorado. The registry was approaching 5,000 books (early October 2007), and is expected to double again in 2008. In addition to the books being collected,
contributions from visitors to the web site are helping expand the database and ensure these interesting genealogical documents get properly archived.

Still looking for that lost ancestor?  When you run across the right surname in a general area at the correct time, never discard this information.  This data may be the same family (yea!) or different (boo!), but one can rarely tell when finding the data originally.  Likewise, a group that appears not to be related when the information is found, may be related and you uncover the link ten years later.  Don’t rely on research data sheets to go back and find information you uncovered 20 years ago: records get misplaced, misfiled, moved, go through natural deterioration, in some cases are discarded or destroyed, not to mention acts of God or vandalism.
