There was an announcement today from BCGS’s friend, Malcolm Moody, at Archive CD Books Canada about a new partnership with Find My Past.
Archive CD Books Canada Inc. joins Findmypast to bring Canadian Content online. Manotick, Ontario, August 16, 2013.
Archive CD Books Canada Inc. is proud to announce that it is working with findmypast.com to make the content of a large number of digitized, genealogical, and historical, documents “on line” for consultation through the excellent data delivery services of Findmypast.com.
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 matter what size they are.”
Archive CD Books Canada and FindMyPast.com are looking forward to continuing to collaborate to enhance and expand this service and to make it available as widely as possible.
About Archive CD Books Canada
The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations. The project began in the UK in March 2000, and the Canadian branch was formed during 2003.
