New/Improved Canadian Websites and Blogs Week 27

PEIAncestors.com http://peiancestry.com/home Art Lockhart from Summerside told me not to forget to mention PEIAncestors, and the great resources that they have in their online collections, oral histories, cemeteries, and newspapers. Personal note - it seems that not only is Mr. Lockhart a prolific headstone photographer, he was also my husband's mechanic when he was posted there (and a very good one at that, so I'm told). For more on his important new work, go to www.journalpioneer.com/News/Local/2011-07-20/article-2668071/Local-couples-hobby-to-benefit-local-historical-records-/1

Genealogies of Valcartier, Quebec (also includes Ste-Catherine, Riviere aux Pins, and Stoneham) www.pbalkcom.com/valcartier Patricia Balkcom wrote me last week to tell me about her page. I went and took a look, and she has census, church, cemetery, and civil records for the area. There are also biographies and information on several thousand people from this area. It is a very nice site, and personally, I look forward to doing some research for my in-laws (Jobin and Bédard), who came from that area, including Shannon and Tewkesbury!
