Library and Archives Canada

While not in Wellington County, Library and Archives Canada is a must for those researching their early Canadian ancestors.  This photo, supplied by Library and Archives Canada, shows the Gatineau Preservation Centre where much of the collection is stored in this ultra-modern facility with climate-controlled vaults.

Library and Archives Canada recently produced a video showing some of what they do, in 90 seconds.  Click on the following link to view the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7z5OBHfe1Q

Free online access to the Census records indices with the opportunity to click and view the original census documents.

How about being able to search, view, and download the military records of Canadian soldiers who served and were killed in action. Records, records, and more records is what you will definitely appreciate.
