This is the new 3rd edition of Angus Baxter's classic In Search of Your Canadian Roots, now brought up to date with revised listings of finding-aids, record repositories, and e-mail and web site addresses. Handled with the acumen we have come to expect of Canada's leading genealogist, it first discusses the great migrations of Scots, Irish, English, Germans, Huguenots, Ukrainians, and Jews to Canada; describes the national archives in Ottawa, with its holdings of censuses, parish registers, naturalization records, land and homestead records, military records, and passenger lists; summarizes the holdings of the LDS Church relating to Canada; and explores the vast nationwide record sources such as census records and church registers. Next it provides a province-by-province survey of genealogical sources--in effect, a step-by-step guide to the records and record repositories in each of the ten provinces and the Yukon and Northwest territories. This core section gives a detailed breakdown--by province and territory--of vital records, wills, land records, censuses, church records, newspapers, and books, then lists libraries, societies, and archives and their major holdings and ongoing projects. For both beginners and experienced researchers alike, the new 3rd edition of In Search of Your Canadian Roots gives common-sense tips on where to begin your research, how to work backward in time from the known to the unknown, how to test your facts and avoid common mistakes, and, ultimately, how to create a family tree. Whether your family has been in Canada for centuries or only several generations, this superb book will show you how to trace your Canadian roots and have fun doing it. Reviews of the prior editions: “Solid, comprehensive and informative--touching on every conceivable subject. ”--Southam News Service“Excellent standard work on Canadian and other areas.

William Filby, American & British Genealogy & Heraldry“...this is the best reference book available for anyone approaching family history work in the Canadian provinces. ”--Forum“As so many Americans have Canadian ancestors or relatives, U.S. libraries should find this useful to have on hand. ”--New York Genealogical and Biographical Record“Recommended for genealogists and genealogical collections with an interest in Canada. ”--American Reference Books Annual“This book is an excellent source of information for the researcher delving into Canadian ancestral roots....even experienced researchers will find this compendium of data useful. ”--Western New York Genealogical Society Journal“Anyone with relatives in Canada...will find assistance in these fact-filled pages. ”--Virginia Genealogist (1994), 2008, 400 pp., index, paper, 5.5x8.5”
