Have been offline recently due to the sudden illness and passing of my
beloved Mother, Lydia Kukasch. Mom was delighted to have attended the last
SGGEE convention in Gatineau and was always sharing memories of growing up
in Wolhynia.

So, in catching up on my Documentary Heritage News,  distributed by Library
and Archives Canada, here are some items that might be of interest :

1)  University of Waterloo Special Collections and Archives - New archives
open for research 2016

Specifically:  University of Waterloo (Ontario)'s collection of
Heimatbuecher (Home Books) from German speaking areas in Europe:


2) Summary of 2015 amendments to the Polish Copyright Act

3)  In case you want to know about world Public Domain days:

Copyright term extension in Trans-Pacific Partnership restricts access,
costs consumers

Public Domain Day outside the USA: what Canada and the rest of the world
