The latest CVHS publication, the 2002 Annual Journal has just been published. It's feature article is the Diary kept by Katherine Jane Balfour, wife of Edward Ellice, the Younger, son of the Seignior of Beauharnois, during her visit to the area in 1838. The cover shows a watercolor painting that she did during a visit to the St-Regis Indian Reservation.
Of particular interest to local historians is the index of the Sellar Papers that is included in the "Notes of Conversations..." article on page 21. It lists the names of all the persons with whom Robert Sellar talked during his research for his history of the Chateauguay Valley. The CVHS has a photocopy of all 4 volumes of the notes that are available for examination by appointment.
For the convenience of readers, the Sellar Index is now on-line. Photocopies of pages can be ordered from the Society copy.
