Launch of the Canadian
Genealogy Centre Web site

March 26, 2003 - The Library and Archives of Canada is pleased to announce the official launch of the Canadian Genealogy Centre Web site. This unique virtual centre will be the primary online site for access to genealogical resources in Canada.

Over the years, Canadians have shown a growing interest in finding out more about their family histories, stories and roots. In fact, genealogy and family history research are the fastest growing hobbies in North America.

The Canadian Genealogy Centre Web site is an online centre that will provide access to all genealogical resources in Canada. It will offer genealogical content, services, advice, and tools, and provide Canadians with the opportunity to work on joint projects online in both official languages.

"The Canadian Genealogy Centre Web site will allow history to be written in the first person—our history, our family, our community—by making available to Canadians the vast network of genealogical information that exists across the country and around the world."

Visit the Canadian Genealogy Centre Web site at:

Web site launch:
Saturday, March 29, 2003
Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa
11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Refreshments will be served.

This event is being held in conjunction with Gene-O-Rama, the 21st annual meeting of the Ottawa Chapter of the Ontario Genealogical Society.

This unique Centre was made possible in part through the Canadian Culture Online Program of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
