New Canadian Genealogy Search Engine
Oh my GAWD!! It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a new website, but "That's my Family" is all that, and a bag of chips (as my 13-year-old would say)!
"This search tool, free of charge and available in French and in English, leads to genealogy and family history databases hosted by federal, provincial or territorial archives centres and libraries, or by other partners.
The federated search engine was launched and is maintained by Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ). The Library and Archives Canada (LAC) partners with BAnQ to oversee the evolution of this project which is also supported by the Council of Provincial and Territorial Archivists (CPTA) of Canada.
The quality of the results obtained by using the federated search engine depends on the nature and structure of the information collected in the searched databases."
In a word, this search engine ties in with a variety of governmental genealogy resource databases, and it's incredibly powerful yet easy to use. My mouth is still hanging open from the results I received.
I'd love to hear your comments about this.
