I recently had an opportunity to speak with Sylvie Tremblay, manager of the Canadian Genealogy Centre at Library and Archives Canada. She is a well-known expert on all things related to Canadian genealogy. She described the many services of Library and Archives Canada, including services available both in person and remotely. The online records include World War I service records, census records, and a growing number of immigration records.
Sylvie also describes the method of researching French-Canadian genealogy, even for those of us who do not speak, read, or write the language. Sylvie is also the genealogist for the Tremblay Family Association, a name that is very common in Canada. Sylvie estimates that there are 150,000 people named Tremblay in North America.
Roots Television videotaped our conversation and has now made it available online. If you would like to learn more about the services of Library and Archives Canada, take a look at: http://www.rootstelevision.com/index.html?bcpid=7225568001&bclid=240119644&bctid=22640287001.
