Some Canadian sources for books (for those few Canadians on this list):
The Irish Shop,150 Bloor St. W.,Toronto, Ontario, M5S 2W7 ph:
The Irish Shop didn't have Bell's Book of Ulster Surnames but had the
following books on names:
Irish Family Histories by Ida Grehan
Book of Irish Names: First Family and Place Names by Ronan Coghlan, Ida
Grehan, and P.W. Joyce
Surnames of Ireland: More than 4000 Names. . . by Edward Mackysaght
Also have a wide selection of other Irish books.
Most bookstores, including Chapters Superstore, World's Biggest
Bookstore, Britnell's, are willing to order up books that they do not
have in stock. I ordered The Book of Ulster Surnames through Chapters at
110 Bloor St. W. (416-920-9299). Since it is an import, it will take
about six-to-eight weeks to arrive and will cost about $35 Canadian.
Check out Books In Print, available at most libraries, for listings of
other Scot-Irish titles.
The Metro Reference Library has a site on the internet and has online
MetroCat, their catalogue of books for all libraries in the Metro
Toronto area . They can guide you to availability of any pertinent
titles. There is also quite a bit of genealogical info available in the
library system. Also, check out the Reference Library's site "Bob's
Your Uncle, Eh?" for referals to genealogical internet sites of interest
Elsewhere in Canada:
Check out libraries, and books available through inter-library loan.
Check out Books In Print, available at most libraries, for Scotch-Irish
titles. Chapters Superstores are expanding across the country. They and
other chains and most independent bookstores will order books for you.
If ordering books on your own from an out-of-country source, remember
that although books are duty-free, our government still wants their bit.
The post office will not only be generous enough to collect the GST
(Goods and Service Tax), but also will charge you for their kindness in
