Title : Our roots

Description :
This website, available in both French and English, contains a vast amount of Canadian historical sources and is searchable either by keyword or browsable in alphabetical order. The site provides access to many interesting and varied aspects to Canadian history, from the initial settlements, through the American invasions in the War for Independence, and Canadian abolition sentiments, through to the erection of the Sackville telephone exchange. The website is both massive in scope and easy to browse, and it benefits from the collaboration from many Canadian libraries, archives and universities. The website will be of great value to historians of North America, and Canada in particular.
