Research Strategies

See the following articles:

Research Tools

Wiki articles describing these collections are found at:

Did you know?

  • The British Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary association of Great Britain and its dependencies, certain former British dependencies that are now sovereign states and their dependencies, and the associated states (states with full internal government but whose external relations are governed by Britain). See http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/history/A0813057.html
  • Digital images of the Census of Canada are available at Library and Archives Canada.
  • Every five years, the nation sets aside one day to conduct the census—a count of all people and households in Canada. The census is the most complete source of information about the population that we have.
  • Volunteers are available to assist with lookups all across Canada. You can search or browse by province at the Genealogy Helplist Canada and at GenerousGenealogists
