      Ancestry Launches Canadian Website
      Collection of More Than 150 Million Names Includes the First and Only Fully Indexed Online 1911 Census of Canada
      PROVO, Utah, Jan. 24 /CNW/ — The leading online network connecting families, MyFamily.com, Inc., today launched a new Canadian family research Web site, Ancestry.ca, (www.ancestry.ca), offering the largest number of Canadian family research records online, including more than 150 million names, and the first and only fully indexed 1911 Census of Canada collection online.
      “Ancestry.ca is designed to provide Canadians and those people with Canadian ancestry the most comprehensive tools and content needed to easily and efficiently research their family history,” said Tim Sullivan, president and chief executive officer of MyFamily.com, Inc. “Our goal was to create the best place to research your Canadian ancestry online, and with the large volume of names, data, records and images accessible on Ancestry.ca, we’re pleased to accomplish the goal.”
      Sullivan noted the site contains a significant amount of Canadian content
      never before published online.
      “The fully indexed 1911 Census of Canada is searchable by family name for
      the first time anywhere on the web,” Sullivan said. “The Census, only the
      fifth general census in Canada, includes information on each inhabitant of the country, including place of habitation, marital status, age, place of birth,
      religion, occupation, education, and more. It is truly a wealth of information to anyone researching Canadian ancestry.”
      The 1911 Census of Canada includes nine provinces, Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Saskatchewan, and two territories — the Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories.
      In addition, Ancestry.ca offers access to online collections of:
      * Ontario Vitals
      * Ontario Marriage Index, 1858-1899
      * Ontario Birth Index, 1869-1907
      * Ontario Death Index, 1869-1932
      * Ontario & Nova Scotia Census Records, 1800-1842
      * Canadian Genealogy Index, 1600s-1900s
      * Canadian Address and Phone Directories, 1995-2002
      * British Columbia Death Index, 1872 -1979
      The site also includes the ability to view authentic 1911 Census images of
      historical records from the Library and Archives Canada.
      Other record collections on the site include content beginning in 1592 and
      continuing through 2002. Records from all provinces and territories are
      represented.
