The ROM contributes to Internet Archive Texts

Annals, North British Society, Halifax, Nova Scotia : with portraits and biographical notes, 1768-1903 is one of the latest genealogically interesting titles now available on the Internet Archive. I attempt to keep track of new Canadian material (re)published there although only the occasional item is worth mentioning for genealogy.

A journal of voyages and travels in the interior of North America : between the 47th and 58th degrees of N. lat., extending from Montreal nearly to the Pacific, a distance of about 5,000 miles : including an account of the principal occurrences during a residence of nineteen years in different parts of the country
Where the fishers go : the story of Labrador
are examples of texts of historical interest that may be of value as background reading. Both are recent additions from the collection of the Royal Ontario Museum.

Previous users of the Internet Archive Texts will notice there is now a new eBook reader online with improved capabilities. Read about it here
