The Cameron Rolls, 1812
This is a most unusual set of records having been kept by Captain Cameron, a company commander in the 3rd regiment of York Militia, of the men in his command. Records actually naming the _É‚Äômen_É‚Äú in this period are scarce, most of them only accounting for the _É‚Äômen_É‚Äú as numbers. These records appear to have originated after 1809 and consist of two separate _É‚Äôroll calls._É‚Äú In addition there are other _É‚Äôrolls_É‚Äú of a detachment of volunteers for service to Amherstburg and another to the Head of the Lake. Then there are lists of the compliment in York Garrison on two occasions and of those granted leave of absence, as well as lists of deserters.

In our search for interesting and useful data for genealogists and historians we frequently come across little treasures either buried in less interesting works or individually published in pamphlet form.
Packed with information unavailable elsewhere we offer reproductions of these finds as our Gleanings line.
The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
