Getting Started: Online Resources

The quality and quantity of online family history resources available to genealogists continues to grow at a steady rate.

One of the most highly used genealogical websites in Canada is the Canadian Genealogy Centre, a genealogy and family history website operated by Library and Archives Canada.  This site provides access to both indexes and records online.

Many genealogical societies such as the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society provide a list of links to other useful web resources.

In addition, a simple browser search using a phrase such as “Canadian genealogy” will produce a list of online genealogical resources such as Ancestry.ca.  Some offer free resources and others provide resources for a fee.
