Research Strategies

See the following articles:

Research Tools

  • Early Canadiana Online is the first large-scale online collection of early Canadian print heritage.
  • The Glenbow Museum has scanned images of diaries, letters, minute books, scrapbooks, and other unpublished archival records for over 3,000 individuals, families, clubs, businesses, schools, and organizations in Calgary, southern Alberta and Western Canada. For example, there are Will Parker's letters to his father in England, in which he tells of getting typhoid fever and joining the Royal Canadian Mounted Police

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
