From Library Journal
Baxter, the author of several "In Search of" books, returns with an updated version of his guide to Canadian genealogical research. As in the earlier editions, Baxter covers the basics of research. He also provides an interesting overview of major group migrations to Canada; discusses the importance of using LDS Family History Centers, the National Archives of Canada, and major records sources such as censuses, church records, and registers; and touches briefly on coats of arms. Baxter then devotes several chapters to each province's available records, archives, genealogical societies, cemeteries, and libraries. A bibliography at the end of the book provides general histories and genealogical readings. The book does not delve as deeply into source materials as does a provincial handbook like Brenda Dougall Merriman's Genealogy in Ontario (Ontario Genealogical Society, 1996. 3d ed.), but it does provide a very useful introduction to general Canadian research. Highly recommended for all collections. --Delaine M. Kuhn, Allen Cty. P.L., Ft. Wayne, IN
