Canadian families

Voici ma famille - That's my family

A new Canadian genealogy search engine, developed and maintained by Bibliotheque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ), allows you to search for information on Canadian ancestors across multiple genealogy and family history databases hosted by federal, provincial and territorial archives centers and libraries.

Right now many of the available sources are from the free genealogy databases at Library and Archives Canada. There are also sources from the British Columbia Archives, Saskatchewan Genealogical Society, Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ), Nova Scotia Archives & Records Management and the Public Archives and Records Office of Prince Edward Island.

The layout and search is very nice, and the site is available in both French and English.
Some searches return citations or film numbers while others show digital images of the actual documents (e.g. city directories).
