History / Biography
The Ottawa Valley Music Festival (known as "The Valley Festival") was a non-profit, charitable corporation whose objectives were three-fold: to promote the appreciation of classical music by providing concerts throughout the Ottawa Valley, to assist promising musicians by providing them with the opportunity to perform in a professional setting, and to provide scholarships to students from the Ottawa Valley who wish to pursue a career in music or the arts. The Valley Festival was started in 1993 by three people: Kevin MacDonald (accountant and former mayor of Arnprior), Yvette MacDonald (wife of Kevin MacDonald), and Mervin Fick (the musical director of Valley Festival, originally from Eganville and now living in Toronto). The Festival was incorporated in 1995 and was organized and run by volunteers. It was dissolved in June 2019.

History / Biography
About 8,000 families from northeast Germany (mostly from Prussia and Mecklenburg) emigrated to the Ottawa Valley between 1857 and the 1870s. Most of these people settled in the northwestern part of Renfrew County, but a significant number also settled in McNab Township and Arnprior, with particular concentrations in German Settlement (now called Clay Valley) and Mansfield.
Scope and Content
The file contains information relevant to genealogists researching their German roots. Some of the information is in German.
Notes
Much current information on this subject is available on the Internet, both in English and in German.
