Archive CD Books Canada Inc. joins FindMyPast to bring Canadian Content online
Malcolm Moody has written to tell us that he has reached an agreement between his company - Archives CD Books Canada Inc. and the FindMyPast people in England, which will “make the content of a large number of digitized, genealogical, and historical, document “on line” for consultation through the excellent data delivery services of FindMyPast.
The newly available Archive CD Books Canada collection consists of over 200 documents yielding almost 70,000 pages of select information. “We carefully chose the documents we digitize on the basis of their usefulness to Family Historians, Genealogists, and Historians” says Malcolm Moody, the president of Archive CD Books Canada. “We believe people will appreciate the care we take to provide accurate, clear, readable, images of every printed page and to hand edit the (invisible) OCRed text to provide researchers with the best chance of finding every occurrence of their searched for words.” Continued Moody, “We also make sure that all illustrations and maps in our source documents are visible in the digitized edition and are included in the correct location, no mater what size they are.”
Malcolm says that you can still go to his site at Archives CD Books Canada Inc. if you want to buy the complete book, but you can go to FindMyPast if you just want a page or portion of a book that has been digitized .
The collection can be accessed on FindMyPast website (subscription site) at
