National Archives of Canada: ArchiviaNet

Maintained by the National Archives of Canada, this site offers descriptions of extensive archival material and some online access to selected documents. The Website includes descriptions of over one million government agency files, an index to the personnel files of 600,000 Canadians who enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War, data from the 1871 Census, Dominion Land Grants, and descriptions of over 400,000 photos and 275,000 artworks, with online access to a small portion of both. (Warning: we were unable to access graphic images on our visit.) The site also features a section devoted to the study of Aboriginal Peoples with some online historical materials. All sections of the site are searchable by simple or detailed search syntax, but since the records are not browseable, general interest users and researchers relying mostly on serendipity should look elsewhere. Databases under development include Court Martials of the First World War, and The Colonial Archives database, containing detailed descriptions of documents concerned mainly with the French and British colonial periods.
