New/Improved Canadian Websites and Blogs Week 16

Here are some of the websites and blogs that I have come across the week ending January 8, 2012. 

Toronto 1861 The "Old Census Scribe" continues her work in transcribing the 1861 Census, but she does more than that, she includes her "method and organization, and the social and geographical details of the area at that time". She started the blog on January 9th, 2009.

Christopher Moore's History News If you want an interesting view of Canada's history, then read Moore's blog.

Toronto Public Library The blog has been online since 2011, and it discovers "the history of your family, your Toronto neighbourhood, or places in Ontario and across Canada".

Diane Lynn Tibert – Handling Over the Reins This blog discusses history and genealogy of Nova Scotia.

Kent County GenWeb As the site says "Kent County is located near the South-Western tip of Ontario, between London and Windsor. It was created in 1792 and from 1792 to 1849 was part of the Western District". There are lots of resources here for you to use.
