You're welcome Lisa.
Yes, "Our Roots" is a wonderful site that just keeps getting better. Here are two more books:
The African in Canada ; The Maroons of Jamaica and Nova Scotia
Africville: the life and death of a Canadian black community
Also, if you go to the search option on the home page,
you can find the bits and pieces of Canadian Black History that are scattered throughout these old texts. Because these books are older, it is necessary to search for out-dated terms such as "negro" and "coloured/colored." When you click on the title that the search engine comes up with, the reference page is listed on the right hand side under "page results." You just click on the page number and the relevant page comes up.
It's amazing how many stories there are here.
