Outstanding Canada Genealogy site
There is an outstanding web site for Canadian, American and British Isles genealogy at globalgenealogy.com. The main page has links to genealogy resources, genealogy software, and genealogy books and other products.
They also have a free genealogy email newsletter called "Global Gazette" that you can sign up for.
However, the real prize for me was the online Canadian resources on this page. The Canadian census records available online arel isted by year - some of them are free sites and some are paid sites, and not every year has a name index or the census images. The point is that all of the years are in one place and easily accessible.
There are links to online data for each province and for a number of research topics (e.g., vital records, military records, immigration records, etc.).
If you have Canadian ancestry, this site looks like a gold mine.
