The blog first served as a ways and means of gathering historical material for a book I was asked to write by Wayne Smythe, the man who first noticed the church was for sale and sought to save it. Wayne's interest was in the abolition-emancipation movement and how it came to Guelph. Neither he nor I speak for the Heritage Society. I include a link to their website below.
What began as a single book has become several. The first of them is called Laying the Bed, and is the result of the work I did in a field of researched Wayne directed me to delve into: the rumoured relationship between native Americans, and especially the Six Nations Reserve, and the earliest years of the Underground Railroad.
