Find My Past Releases Canadian Records

We've been waiting a long time my fellow Canadian researchers, haven't we? 
When Christine Woodcock, Mike Quackenbush and I met Gail Rivet, Chief Operating Officer, and Ben Bennett, Vice President of Operations of Find My Past this past February at RootsTech, we learned Canadian records were coming. See the interview here. We expected the Canadian records would be released in November. However, the Canadian collection has been available since the beginning of October, in time for Family History Month.

Today, it's been officially announced Find My Past now has Canadian records in its collections. See the announcement on the Find My Past Fridays post.

But, I'm going to let you in on a secret.

There are more Canadian records available on Find My Past than what has been announced on their blog. A lot more. There are over 200 index and records sets of Canadian records.

Here's how to find them: 

If you have a subscription to FMP, log in. It doesn't matter if you are using the UK or the US website. 
On the home screen, click Search from the top menu bar. 

From the drop down menu, scroll down to 'A-Z of record sets' and click on that.

On this search page, type Canada into the search box and press your enter key. Look at all the Canadian records!

You can narrow your search by entering the province in the search box. Some provinces, like Ontario, have more records than other provinces.

Find your Canadian ancestors.
Find My Past has made it easier.
Happy Friday!

Disclosure: I am an ambassador for Find My Past. I have received a complimentary subscription to its databases and records.
