What a month!

This blog had a record number of page loads, unique visitors and returning visitors in September, all up a factor four since the start of the year. Each month this year has seen a new high in all three categories, except for an unavoidable hiatus in August.

Interaction has been increasing too. Comments have been at record levels. I enjoyed chatting with readers at the BIFHSGO conference earlier in the month, itself a record breaker for the Society. There were a lot of new visitors who share a frustration with the reduction in hours and other service problems at LAC.

October promises to be quite a month. October 11 sees the start of CBC's "Who do you think you are?" series. LAC have promised a fresh look for the Canadian Genealogy Centre web site to go along with what they anticipate being a rush of WDYTYA-stimulated hits.

Perhaps October's new session of Parliament, and the speech from the throne, will have something to offer heritage in Canada too.
