There are lots of blogs out there to help you learn how to do family history research. This blog lets you watch our progress as we roll the Canadian Genealogy Survey out across the country. We'll also track developments in research on family history. It's a bit of a twist, but we hope you'll find something of interest. We welcome your comments.

If you haven't taken the survey yet, you can find it at:

A LIVELY SURVEY INDEED! (almost 200 completed in first 48 hrs.)

Wow!!! We just heard from our survey coordinators and 191 people have completed the survey in the first 48 hours of it going live.

I suppose it proves one of our initial suspicions: ie. that genealogists are among the most active internet users out there.

We have just initiated our publicity campaign with "old fashioned" media such as posters and fliers and a press release to newspapers, and already we are scheduled for a few interviews.

We think that we have a well designed survey that we look forward to sharing with all of you as soon as we sort out how to access all your responses

  1. This is asinine! I had a cogent post ready to send, tried to figure out that meaningless drop-down box and lost it all!

    These items have to be made for the person with average computer literacy.

    I'll try again...
