Project Name: 2021-0116 Three County Geographical Genealogy (GeoGen) Mapping Project Purpose: Additional description and comments: This project involves a partnership to conserve a full set of the Ambrose F. Church maps (1864–1888), showing 18 counties of Nova Scotia. The current project involves the first five maps. Designed for topographical reference, the maps also include head-of-household names and precise locations for all homes in late 19th-century Nova Scotia. The surviving maps are small in number and mostly deteriorating. Following conservation and preservation, they can be digitized and linked (to census data, genealogical information, other map overlays, etc.) and extended across time. The result will be a huge asset for Canadians researching family history in Nova Scotia, and a major resource for social history scholars.

Project Name: 2021-0158 Jewish Independent—40 Years of Community Newspapers Purpose: Additional description and comments: The Jewish Western Bulletin began as a local Jewish community newspaper in British Columbia in 1925. Known today as The Jewish Independent, the paper provided a community space for all, 'regardless of affiliation, politics, gender, orientation, ability, denomination or age, to find out what their Jewish community has to offer.' The Jewish Museum and Archives of British Columbia (JMABC) collected these newspapers for decades, and in 2006 it worked with Simon Fraser University to digitize them. In 2011, the JMABC acquired the research and photographic collection that supported the newspaper from 1970 to the early 2000s. This project involves processing these files and making them accessible.
