BOOK - Finding Your Canadian Ancestors: A Beginner's Guide
By Sherry Irvine and Dave Obee.
Published by Ancestry, Provo, 2007
Canada’s size and diversity also influence its records, which are similarly varied and at times complex. In Finding Your Canadian Ancestors, authors Sherry Irvine and Dave Obee guide you through Canadian genealogical records, first by record type and then according to province.
The authors detail both government and ecclesiastical records as well as records related to special groups such as Aboriginals, Acadians, and Loyalists. They give special attention to online resources, including the extensive holdings of Library and Archives Canada.
