Table of Contents

Foreword: (maybe by Richard Gerrard at the City of Toronto Museum Services?)
Preface: Brief explanation of why I wrote the book (its value to genealogists) and background to the project including most of what was in the introduction to the report (purpose, scope, methodology, criteria, findings)
Acknowledgements: Museum folks, descendants, other researchers
Introduction: “teeny” history of War of 1812 and involvement of the militia
Chronology: List of major events of the war in which the York militia regiments were involved
Section One: Records
    - this will expand on the records discussion that was in my report, dividing it up by record type and discussing the strengths and weaknesses of each record and how to find it
Section Two: Biographies
    - this will be virtually the same as what I submitted for my report (assuming you’re okay with sample I sent you), the number of bios included will depend on the criteria we decide to use for inclusion. At the lowest (if we just focus on the 3rd York Regiment), it would be 15 bios, at the highest it would be 39 (if we include everything in my original report, including the two unidentified men about whom I know virtually nothing)
    - each bio has its own notes
