Use these resources to find your ancestors up north. These websites have information on Canadian, French-Canadian and Acadian ancestors that you don’t want to miss.
Come here for all things Canadian genealogy. Now undertaking an ambitious newspaper digitization project, this site already serves up millions of pages from old books and magazines, parish records, passenger and shipping manifests and more.
The addition of 1.7 million more records means this collection of Quebec databases now covers certificates of baptism, marriage and burial between 1621 and 1849. Marriages are indexed to 1911. Searching is free, but full results cost about $25 for 150 records.
Searchable census records include all major enumerations plus regional returns dating as far back as 1825. Other databases cover vital, immigration, land and military records.
Nearly a million searchable vital records, linked to images of the originals, can help you trace your Nova Scotia ancestors. Marriage records begin in 1763, births and deaths in 1864.
