Other Info
 
This course is not intended as an instruction manual for basic genealogy. There are many very good books, courses and information available to instruct beginners. Rather this course is intended as a general guide tothe records available for those conducting genealogical research in Canadian records for the first time.

Specifically, this course isintended as a guide to researchers living outside of Canada who find that their research journey has led them to the point that they must now enter unfamiliar territory and conduct research in the records of another country, when those records may not follow thepatterns with which they are familiar. To that end, each province will be examined individually in order to understand the variations in the records and storage that apply to each province.
