Recent new and updated Canadian genealogy collections

Below you'll find my summary of the new and updated Canadian records released by the major genealogy database suppliers during the last five weeks. For the previous summary, see my 10 January blogpost.

These regular listings of additional sources are designed primarily to help family historians whose Irish ancestors emigrated to Canada, but you don't have to have heritage from Ireland! They may prove useful to any researchers looking for a brief update of what's recently available for Canada.

Unless otherwise stated, the figures in parenthesis reflect the number of records uploaded to a new collection, or the total number in a newly topped-up collection (if provided by the database owner).
