BAXTER, Angus
On September 26, 2005, in his 94th year - after a long, varied and happy life. Writer, traveler, poet, businessman, and renowned expert on genealogy, Angus was born in 1912 in Bristol, England and educated at Bristol Grammar School and Bristol University. He enlisted in the British Army on the first day of World War 2 and served with the London Scottish from 1939 to 1946 as a Lieutenant Colonel and Staff Officer. In 1943, he married Nan PEARSON, the love of his life and also his best friend. After more than 62 years, they were as much in love as ever. They immigrated to Toronto in 1953 with their daughter Susan. Angus was vice-president of Seccombe House - a publishing and marketing company. He retired in 1970 and he and Nan spent a year travelling slowly around the world. Travel played a great part in their extraordinary happy life together and during their marriage they visited more than a hundred different countries. After his retirement, Angus started an entirely new career as an author and lecturer on genealogy. He wrote six books, published in several countries and, mostly, still in print. He gave over 1,000 lectures around the world and more than 300 television and radio interviews. It delighted him to know that he had helped so many people trace their ancestors. Angus did not take either himself or life too seriously. And with his beloved Nan by his side he could often say with truth, "We did have fun!" He is survived by Nan, and by his daughter Susan and granddaughter Katherine BARCSAY - who he deeply loved. Private cremation. Ashes to be scattered later in the English valley of his ancestors.

Angus BAXTER, Genealogist: (1912-2005)
Former army colonel and failed novelist wrote six books that helped thousands of Canadians trace their family roots
By Catherine CULLEN, Special to the Globe and Mail, Thursday, November 24, 2005, Page S9
Families around the world can be grateful that Angus BAXTER failed in his dreams of becoming a novelist. If, as a young man, Mr. BAXTER had achieved the success he coveted in writing fiction, he might never have gone on to pen the six books that made up his In Search of Your Roots series, which helped people across the world reunite with lost relatives.
Mr. BAXTER's interest in genealogy was born out of loss early in his life. As a four-year-old in Bristol, England, young Angus lost his father, William, to heart failure. Having not really known his father, and growing up feeling largely estranged from his devoutly Christian mother, Mr. BAXTER turned to genealogy as a way of understanding his own past.
He was able to translate what he had learned into his first published book, In Search of Your Roots: A Guide for Canadians Seeking Their Ancestors. First published in Mr. BAXTER's adopted home of Canada in 1978, the book effectively communicated his own excitement in the quest to find one's family, said Douglas Gibson, Mr. BAXTER's original publisher at Macmillan of Canada and later at McClelland and Stewart.
Mr. BAXTER was one of the first authors to understand the attraction that genealogy held, said Mr. Gibson. "Searching for your ancestors is armchair travel, but it's travel through time as well. He recognized the excitement in that."
He decided to take that enthusiasm on the road to promote his book. He and his wife, Nan, travelled across Canada and eventually to many different parts of the world. Mr. BAXTER would give lectures on finding one's ancestors and Nan would sell books at the back of the room.
"It seemed like almost every weekend, they were off to this rotary club or that library," recalled Mr. Gibson. "He was sewing the seeds and people went away from that meeting saying, 'Oh, I just read the most amazing book and it's about how you find you roots and you must read it.' "
And people did read it. His books sold hundreds of thousands of copies in Canada and were picked up by Genealogical Publishing Company in the United States. He did hundreds of media interviews and even made an appearance on NBC's The Today Show. Many readers would write Mr. BAXTER, asking for help with their search for their ancestors.
One such reader, Caroline Whitehead, decided to write him after picking up a copy of Searching for your British and Irish Roots at her local library in British Columbia. In her letter, she told Mr. BAXTER about her life growing up in an orphanage in Kent, England, and her dreams of finding her parents.
He not only replied to her letter, he also set to work helping with her research, looking at records that Ms. Whitehead would never have been able to access herself, she said. He never charged her a cent for his time, she added. "He opened every door that was firmly closed to me in trying to find out where I was born, who my parents were -- who I was, really. He did that for me."
While he excelled as an author and genealogist, it wasn't always such an obvious path for Angus BAXTER. Rather, like the search to find one's roots, Mr. BAXTER's path to success as an author was long and full of unexpected turns.
As a young man, he studied history in university and dreamed of becoming a writer. Unable to achieve any great measure of success, he eventually turned to managing ice rinks. Hockey had not yet taken off in his home country of England, but teams would visit from North America and put on exhibition games. It was while working at a local arena that he met his future wife, Nan PEARSON. When the two were introduced he was told, "This is our Miss PEARSON. She'll take care of you."
Before any real romance bloomed between the two, the Second World War broke out. Mr. BAXTER enlisted on the first day of the war. He served in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, eventually rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel.
Always the raconteur, he loved to tell stories about the more amusing moments of his time in the war, recalled his only daughter, Susan BAXTER. In one instance, he was running out the door, late to meet with Friends, when the phone rang. It was his commanding officer. The officer went on and on and Mr. BAXTER agonized over not being able to get off the phone. Finally, he bolted from the house and arrived at his destination, only to find it had been bombed. "For the rest of his life, he always stopped to answer the phone on the way out the door."
During the war, Angus and Nan began to correspond. Eventually, the two were married in 1943. When the war ended, the couple, like many in Britain, had expected to find that the class system in their country would diminish. Realizing the war had not brought the social changes they expected, husband and wife joined the Conservative Party of Britain. Mr. BAXTER enjoyed backroom politics and worked as a political strategist. Ms. BAXTER ran unsuccessfully for a local seat.
In 1949, Susan was born. In 1951, another baby died shortly after birth. With their political battle proving to be a struggle, and the loss hanging over them, the BAXTERs decided on a change. They wanted to move within the British Empire, and since Australia seemed too far and South Africa too dangerous, they decided on Canada.
Mr. BAXTER worked at a few odds jobs to support his family here, eventually settling into a position managing the National Gift Show in Toronto. It was only once he retired from that job in 1970 that he began working on the series of books that would make his reputation.
One of the things he loved most about his career as an author was the opportunity it gave him to help others, said his daughter.
"He answered every single letter people wrote, and continued to do that until about three years ago [when his eyesight began to fail]. If he liked the sound of somebody, he would absolutely go out of his way to help them."
Angus BAXTER was born in Bristol, England on June 8, 1912. He died in Toronto on September 26, 2005. He leaves his wife, Nan, his daughter, Susan, and granddaughter, Katherine BARCSAY.
