At the time of both the first edition (1989) and this current edition (1997) the Internet was not the substantial resource for genealogists that it is today. Although most of the factual information contained in this volume is now available online, those interested will still want to have this reference for its many short overviews of the source materials, and the convenience of having all this information in one place.

Each section is written by a different author, a genealogist certified by the Genealogical Institute of the Maritimes. The following is taken from the preface: "The Genealogist's Handbook for Atlantic Canada Research is intended to be a companion to a similarly named book for research in New England. It is not a methods manual, but a guide to the location of records, repositories and genealogical societies in Atlantic Canada: New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island."

Each geographic section is further broken down into concise subsections (generally 2 pages or less): Historical Overview; Major Archives; Vital Records; Census Records; Land Records; Probate Records; Church Records; Cemetery Records; Immigration; Museums, Libraries and Societies; Newspapers; Periodicals; and Bibliography.

Readers should note the author's statement that the book is not a methods manual. Inside you'll find no general advice, subjective analysis or professional insights. Rather, this handbook is a list of what resources exist, generally why they exist, the time periods they cover, and the information they contain. References are given to books with more in-depth information on certain topics. The extensive bibliographies are a highlight.
