LAC completes digitizing Canada Gazette back issues

Library and Archives Canada announces the completion of a multi-year project to digitize the Canada Gazette.

The Canada Gazette is the Government of Canada official publication, Issues from 1841 to 1997 are now on the LAC website.

It's a rare family historian who finds notices of government regulations riveting reading, regulations form a large part of the Gazette these days. Do a search on this archive and perhaps your, or your or an ancestor's, name may surface.  Mine did.

Will it perhaps be in connection with a sheriff sale of land, a public service appointment, a militia officer appointment, or in a bank list of creditors?
