Last week’s survey asked about research interests in Canada. Surprisingly, New Brunswick lagged far behind the two leaders, Nova Scotia (48%) and Quebec (45%). The complete list in order is:

  1. Nova Scotia, 48%
  2. Quebec, 45%
  3. Ontario, 38%
  4. New Brunswick, 31%
  5. Prince Edward Island, 15%
  6. Other Provinces and Territories, 11%
  7. Newfoundland and Labrador, 10% 

In addition to our New England resources, the Society has extensive collections to assist researchers in eastern Canada, especially the provinces of Quebec and Nova Scotia. Check the catalog at http://library.nehgs.org for more specific information.

Two weeks ago the Society ran its annual research tour to Salt Lake City. With almost 100 participants this year, it was a tremendous success. FamilySearch provided pedometers to the staff and participants to track their movements. I wore mine only to and from the library to see what kind of numbers I would generate. This week’s survey asks you to estimate how many steps I logged.

 

This week’s survey asks those with Canadian research interests to tell us what provinces they are interested in. Take the survey now!
