Ancestry Adds Canadian Directories, Almanacs ...

It`s always interesting to find an ancestor in old directories, list of members and similar publications. Finding a name, and perhaps information on where they are, or their role in the organization, can help fill in gaps in your information. In the past few days Ancestry has added about 20 of this type of resource, mainly for Ontario and Quebec, plus a few for the Maritime Provinces.

Here is the list:

Thanks for this list. Although none of the listings is relevant to me, they give me more ideas for further queries.
