The leading online network connecting families, MyFamily.com, Inc., launched a new Canadian family research site, Ancestry.ca <http://www.ancestry.ca> on Tuesday, January 24th, 2006.

They are offering one of the largest collections of Canadian family records online, including more than 150 million names, and the first and only fully-indexed 1911 Census of Canada collection online.

"Ancestry.ca is designed to provide Canadians and those people with Canadian ancestry the most comprehensive tools and the content needed to easily and effectively research their family history," said Tim Sullivan, president and chief executive officer of MyFamily.com, Inc.

The site contains a significant amount of Canadian content never before published online.

"The fully indexed 1911 Census of Canada is searchable by family name for the first time anywhere on the web," said Sullivan. "The census, only the fifth general census in Canada, includes information on each inhabitant of the country, including place of habitation, marital status, age, place of birth, religion, occupation, education and more. It is truly a wealth of information to anyone researching Canadian ancestry."

Other record collections on the site include content beginning in 1592 and continued through 2002. Records from all provinces and territories are represented.

A membership fee is required for searching the records.
