8 Canadian family history websites TNA finds most useful

While at TNA last month I picked up a four page handout "Useful Websites for Family History." It's dated 23 March 2009. These are the 8 Canadian (.ca) domain sites mentioned.

www.collectionscanada.ca/02/020122_e.html 1901 census of Canada
(Note: now stale. The link for the 1901 census at LAC is now http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1901/index-e.html)

www.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca/textual/governmt/vstats/v_events.htm British Colombia births, marriages and deaths

http://vitalstats.gov.mb.ca/Query.php Manitoba, Canada, births, marriages & deaths

http://www.isc.ca/vitalstatistics/genealogy/vsgs_srch.aspx Canada Saskatchewan births over 100 years

www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-505.004-e.html Canada naturalisation 1915 - 1932

http://ist.uwaterloo.ca/~marj/genealogy/thevoyage.html Canada; shipping lists

www.magma.ca/~mkort/scotgaz.html a list of all places in Scotland

www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/archivianet/cef/index-e.html 600,000 Canadians who enlisted, 1914-1918


These wouldn't all constitute my choices. I'd certainly replace the LAC 1901 census site with automatedgenealogy.com which has a name index and links to the LAC images.
