Special Note: Hundreds of Canadian local histories have been made freely available online at the University of Calgary Digital Library. This site is not affiliated with Books We Own, but I included the link here as it should be of general interest to those researching roots in Canada.

(Note: locale-specific resources are listed under their present-day County Regional Municipality (MRC). For an explanation of how former counties fit under the present system, see the Quebec GenWeb site- this link points to an archived version of the original site).
