Canadian Books on

I've been watching add digitized Canadian books to their collection for several days now. These works can be accessed using an Ancestry World subscription or an Ancestry Canada subscription. In addition, users at 13 LDS Regional Family History Centers or the Family History Library in Salt Lake City can access them through Ancestry Institution. Libraries subscribing to Ancestry Library Edition (perhaps??) can access them. Oh, also at the Borders Concept Bookstores that have available for customers to use (like in Plaza Bonita in nearby National City CA).

John D. Reid has a list of these digitized books on his Anglo-Celtic connections blog - see Thanks, John, for the list. Hopefully, he will add to it until the collection is complete (or his bandwidth is all used up?).

When this collection is complete, I'll probably check it out down at the San Diego FHC. You never know what goodies you're going to find in collections of this nature. I can only hope for Sarah Sephrona (Fletcher?) Kemp. However, it is in collections like this - of small or relatively obscure works - that some family history puzzles are solved.
