Gifts for Canadian Genealogists

It's good to see resources for the Canadian genealogist becoming available online, and not just from the commercial sites,

Toronto directories from 1833 to 1969 are highlighted in a post by Jane MacNamara on her Where the Story Takes Me blog. Jane writes that the more recent years are new and there may well be more to come. Included in her post is a handy table so you can click through to a particular year, and hints on searching.

Jane has quite a few presentations scheduled for 2018 including at the OGS conference.

A large selection of Quebec newspapers have become searchable thanks to Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ).

While not all the papers are in French the search interface is. For those of us whose French is rusty, or non-existent, it's Gail Dever to the rescue with a detailed two part post (part 1, part 2) on her blog Genealogy à la carte.

I didn't find anything on her site about presentations in 2018, but Gail seems to have boundless energy. Could it be she's writing something beyond blog posts?
