Canadian Genealogy: Help
This website provides a broad range of genealogy related services,
generally focussing on, but not limited to, south-western Ontario.
This site focuses in particular on Canada, so there
are a number of special services for collecting, distributing, and
managing genealogical information for Canada. These comprise:
- Transcriptions of parts of the
censuses of Canada from 1851 to 1911.
These transcriptions cover more columns of the originals than are
available from other sites, and can be searched using a lot of ways
that are not supported. For example you could search for all Butchers
in an area, or for Chinese individuals, or for members of the
Swedenborgian church. Although the completed portions of the
transcriptions are largely limited to south-western Ontario, the
service itself supports the entire country, and again can be
contributed to by many people through a web interface.
- Transcriptions of thousands of
birth, marriage, and death registrations
for the province of Ontario. Although Ancestry provides a much more
complete transcription, access to their service is by subscription,
and the service on this site provides more search options.
The transcription service supports contribution from volunteers
through a web interface.
