LAC New Guide for Pre-confederation Official Publications

The following is from a press release from Library and Archives Canada:

Ottawa, October 21, 2010 - Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce the release of a new guide to its vast collection of federal and provincial publications which were published prior to 1867.  The guide lists the publications, which are available in various formats, in chronological order and by geographical area.
The guide is available at the following address: http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/the-public//005-1142.26-e.html

Comment:  The guide is to official publications such as proceedings of legislatures organized in chronological order and, within each time period, by geographical area.

There are more than a few links to digitized version of these documents. Unless they were prominent in government matters finding a family member is likely to be a bit of a long-shot.
