  • Hi everyone, I am still coordinating the Ukrainian and Métis SIGs and they are currently under AFHS (Alberta Family Histories Society) even though I have relocated from Calgary to Kelowna. On December 1, 2011 I will be discontinuing my TELUS account and, hopefully, selling KnowMap and moving on to writing, genealogy and such projects. Stanford Solutions Inc. will no longer exist...

  • Like all things that live off donations or are publicly supported is that there is a limit to money and resources. This is not in the value or loss of the resources. As far as I can tell between my current use of LAC and my past use is that there has been an improvement over the years. I can’t tell what impact the last three years have had on it. I can tell what the last year or...

  • Thank you Laura for taking an investigative rather than knee-jerk approach. I would like to be on any committee that is struck. I can attend meetings through conference call. I also do and have done research at LAC in a professional capacity. I have had and continue to have positive responses to information requests – some have gone above and beyond the call of duty. I have had...

  • Unfortunately, both are just repeating text from CAUT's press release without doing any original research on the matter. All they are doing is what CAUT wants - spread the fear! Why is the genealogy community which prides itself upon research just repeating the words of this organization? The library and archives' community is not broadcasting the press release or any other...

  • Further to CAUT’s comment that there are no professional/accredited members of the library/archives professions on the National Librarian/Archivist’s team, I know for a fact that this is false. I checked my library association member directories and can assure you that there are professionals there, including the first and so far only woman appointed to the position of the...

  • I made one error – the current Librarian and Archivist of Canada has taught at several universities. This is the first time to my knowledge though that CAUT has cared who the National Librarian and Archivist is and what credentials he has. I just checked the library forums to which I belong and not a peep about any problems at or with LAC since 2007. Then the complaint was only...

  • Hi Bill, I found parish records in the county archives. The families I am researching all came to Canada in or before 1847, so the baptism and marriages for 1797-1837 that I found were in the county archives. Sometimes the archbishop‘s county ended up in the archives. I have no idea what happened to the parish copy. Where do you suggest looking for those because I don’t think...
