FC 34 New England Captives Carried to Canada
Following are some items that were mentioned during the 11 April 2013 Fieldstone Common interview with Donald R. Friary about the book New England Captives Carried to Canada.
New England Captives Carried to Canada, published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, is available for purchase from the New England Historic Genealogical Society online bookstore.
Donald R. Friary wrote the foreword to New England Captives Carried to Canada. This is a re-release of the 1925 book by Emma Lewis Coleman. Donald Friary was the Executive Director of Historic Deerfield for 27 years. Deerfield is well known for being the site of a massive French and Indian raid in 1704 where 112 captives were forced to march to Quebec.
Historic Deerfield is now a collection of historic house museums located in one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in New England. It is located about a half hour north of Springfield, Massachusetts. On the same street is the historic Deerfield Inn in case you decide to make a visit.
The New England Historic Genealogical Society, the publisher of New England Captives Carried to Canada, donated two copies of the book which were given as “door prizes” during the live show to listeners in Arizona and England. A big thank you to the New England Historic Genealogical Society for their generosity!
