Collections Head North with Debut of Canadian Books

Addition from Archives CD Books Canada Provides 200 Name-rich, Searchable Volumes

LOS ANGELES (August 16, 2013) –, an international leader in online family history, today announced the recent addition of Canadian Books from Archives CD Books Canada to the site. The collection of books cover numerous subjects in 200 volumes that span nearly three centuries of North American heritage from across the continent, including nine Canadian provinces. The Canadian Books are now available in’s continually growing collection of US and Canadian resources as a core resource for Canadian and Scotch-Irish researchers.

Dating back to the 1600s, the Canadian Books boast 71,000 pages of items such as military, religious, occupational and immigration records, business directories, published genealogies and BMDs. While a primary Canadian resource, its scope of literature crosses over various nationalities and US territories. With titles such as Sketches of Irish soldiers,The Scotch-Irish of Californiaand German-Canadian folklore the collection is valuable for people with Canadian ancestry and those who can trace their origins back to the UK or Europe.

The books feature a sizeable amount of military records with various nominal rolls and rolls of honour relating mostly to the First World War, such as The Royal Montreal Regiment, 14thBattalion, University of Toronto Roll of Service 1914-1918 and 31st Canadian Infantry CEF 1914-1919.

“The vast amount of information in these books touch upon almost every aspect of daily life in the past,” said D. Joshua Taylor, lead genealogist for, “as a fundamental backbone for Canadian research, this addition furthers our mission to bring together strong resources from all parts of the English-speaking world that your ancestors migrated to.”

This collection of Canadian Books is accessible on all findmypast international sites through a World Subscription.
