Thanks, Richard.  Yes, I have learned to pretty much complete a course before registering too.  I have had too many last minute busy days.  And yes...I do have Ancestry deluxe as well.  Sounds like we think quite a bit alike.  Should mean I am on the right track then.

HI' Shirley-- I' started by doing my meth first ,then the others--keeping Paleography second  last-- before ANALYSIS pt 3  . What I thought to help was read the material-do the assignment-- then register the course --this way there was no time pressure . Also good to have Ancestry membership for the advance courses--( deluxe edition-$ 299.00  Can.)

I am finally beginning the Advanced Level of my Canadian Studies. Does anyone have any recommendations as to the order of course completion that would prove most beneficial? I have generally started with the Methodology courses and then moved to more topic specific courses. I have also found it worked better for me to complete the Skills and Analysis course in its totality at the end as I found it was too disjointed for me to work on it in bits and pieces over the course of a year. Does anyone have other methods that have worked for them?

On Oct.2 2011 for the 170th anniversary of "CANADA GAZETTE"--a project that started in 2008--was made accessible ONLINE at .Canada Gazette is the most official journal of the government.You can search from 1840-1996.A better explanation can be found on the site.By curiosity I entered a name of one ancestor that carried a "Capt" onto his mortuary card but in 45  years -no relatives knew that he was a retired Captain of malitia in his youth-until I discovored it -on first hit- in the Journal covering-from 1860--the year he was born-retired with his title on sept 28-1888.

That was a real treasure to find! There may be some for you to find!

Just an addendum, the RG 8, "C" series British Military and Naval Records microfilms have been digitized. You might be able to find his name in the muster rolls. See for the announcement. Once you get to the page with all the microfilm numbers click on "Help" for guidance on how to possibly locate the correct microfilm.

@Debra: In Dr. Esther Clark Wright's book "The Loyalists of New Brunswick" There is a John Butler possibly from New Jersey (question mark beside that) that served in the PWAR (Prince Of Wales' American Regiment AKA Prince of Wales' American Volunteers) and settled in the Kennebecasis area of Kings County, New Brunswick. On the PANB site there are several land grant petitions in Kings County for a John Butler with the first one in 1788 and two more in 1810 and 1814.

@ Debra:  Your Edward is only a maybe for me.  The furthest on the Hazel line I got was to James Hazel born about 1826 in Ontario.  He married Mary Jane Herbert (or possibly Hebert).  The family lived in the area where Brant, Oxford and Norfolk come together.

Hi,  I'm working on the following lines before 1850,  Joseph Mason b 1780 in "Montreal" of English descent, in Wentworth Co, by 1813/4 and his wife Rebecca Wedge, b. 1794 New Jersey, settled in Glanford Tp.  Parentage unknown for both. 

Also searching the following:  Crooks, Hazel, Corey, all in counties around west Lake Erie.

Debra - re John Butler
I don't see him in any of the books I have. DeLancey's Brigade had 3 units, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Battalion all out on NY. Disbanded along the Saint John River in 1783.
Prince of Wales American Volunteers were raised primarily in Connecticut and New England. Recruitment at NY over the winter of 1776-1777. They disbanded along the Saint John River in 1783.

I'm working on my Corman and Patterson family. Isaac Corman of Saltfleet and Patterson of Thorold and Pelham, Welland in Ontario.
