The Beaver changing name effective April 2010
Well, it seems that the venerable The Beaver: Canada's History Magazine will be changing its name effective with its April/May 2010 issue. Its creators never realized that the, ummm, slang connotation associated with its title would wreak havoc with those dealing with spam filters and filtering software. So it will become Canada's History instead. To learn more about the name change, please visit the CBC website for their report.
What I never realized until I visited their site is that the magazine offers a service called, Canadian Roots @ The Beaver: Where amateur genealogists can solve their personal history mysteries. It's a great forum for discussion on topics that people are seeking answers to genealogical quandries. I hope you have as much fun poking around the site as I have!
