Ottawa, February 23, 2004 - Library and Archives Canada is adding a new guide to its virtual Canadian Genealogy Centre. Titled Researching Your Aboriginal Ancestry at Library and Archives Canada, the guide is designed for those who wish to undertake genealogical research on their Aboriginal ancestors at Library and Archives Canada.

The production of this guide by the Canadian Genealogy Centre is part of a 
collaboration between Library and Archives Canada and Aboriginal researchers. The Centre also intends to work with Aboriginal communities and other partners on a second part of the guide, which would provide even more information on the sources available to researchers throughout Canada.

According to Richard Collins, who wrote the guide and is one of the Aboriginal genealogy specialists at Library and Archives Canada, “the best part of this new tool is that it allows everyone to acquire the proper methodology to do effective genealogical research while avoiding numerous pitfalls.”

The wealth and diversity of Canada’s Aboriginal cultures bring a unique quality to the lives of many Canadians. More and more people find pride in seeking out their Aboriginal roots as they turn to Library and Archives Canada for help in their research.

To access Researching Your Aboriginal Ancestry at Library and Archives Canada, you can go to the Canadian Genealogy Centre Web site at, click on “How To” then click on “Guides.” 

The Canadian Genealogy Centre is made possible through the support of the Canadian Culture Online Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
