Archive CD Books Canada partners with

Over at the British Columbia Genealogical Society website, just posted is an announcement from Malcolm Moody of Archive CD Books Canada. The company is now in partnership with

Considering everything, I'm very optimistic that this will be a good relationship for the two companies and one that will benefit genealogists and family historians doing Canadian research. Many unique books are included in this collection.

Malcolm and his company have been good friends with Canadian genealogical societies, helping to promote genealogical collections and research projects and events across the country, for instance.

Archive CD Books specializes in providing high quality access on CD to searchable historical books and documents from private or small collections. Many of these would otherwise be either inaccessible or impossible or too expensive to purchase.

If you're on Facebook, do 'like' Archive CD Books Canada. You'll often see breaking news and very interesting commentary there on Canadian research and resources. I certainly recommend Archive CD Books Canada! (Just a friend - no commercial relationship.)

With this partnership, at last gains a significant and unique collection of Canadian genealogical data to share with its subscribers. I'm one and although I haven't been as excited as they thought I would be about their website (!), I was happy enough that I recently renewed. And generally I do believe that at least a bit of competition is a good thing for consumers. Too many commercial websites, in my opinion, offer data that's available at several other places, or, sometimes, is free elsewhere, or in a more accessible format elsewhere.

And FindMyPast has now Canadian newspapers as well, although these don't seem to have been listed yet with the years available. (Perhaps another announcement soon?) As many will know I do love newspapers, and I've been checking their Winnipeg and other Manitoba newspaper issues, but apparently searchable are:
