Automated Genealogy: Census, Etc. Le début d'un temps nouveau ancestry.com: Canadian Genealogy Index 1600s-1900s This database contains over two million records referencing individuals from all regions of Canada, as well as early Alaska.

Information that may be found in this database for each individual includes their name; year and place of the event or recording of the individual; province and county where the source is located; source title; and volume/page number where the individual can be found in the source. Canada, like the United States, is a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic nation.
