Other Info
 
You were probably surprised by the amount of information included in the Canadian: Vital Statistics Records - Part 1 course. You will recognize that some material in Part 2 was included in the basic course. It is being repeated in order for the student to focus on this particular facet of present day documents. The Canadian: Vital Statistics Records - Part 2 course will continue to describe the whereabouts of the records that are available at Government Archives as well as Government Offices and Court Houses records, i.e., Government present day registrations for Birth, Marriages and Deaths; Adoption Records from Government Offices and Divorce Records from both.

The other area we will cover is that of Adoption Records and their accessibility. An adoption search is quite different from any other search you will ever undertake and should be done with great care. It effects the lives of the living more profoundly than you would ever imagine.

We will also be examining the procedure for finding and using Divorce records in genealogy.
