Hello Everyone
Here are some interesting and exciting news items.

In Quarantine: Life and Death on Grosse Île, 1832-1937:

Ancestry.ca and FamilySearch Announce Agreement to Digitize and Index Existing Canadian Censuses
As part of the agreement, FamilySearch will digitize and index Canadian census records that Ancestry.ca has acquired. These digitized and indexed records will then be made available to Ancestry.ca members on the company's Web site, and the indexes will be available for free to the public at FamilySearch.org. The images will be free to all FamilySearch family history centers.

FamilySearch will deliver images and indexes to Ancestry.ca for censuses from 1861, 1871, 1881, and 1916, to launch online in 2009. In return, Ancestry.ca will provide indexes to FamilySearch for the 1891 and 1901 censuses.

Have a great day. Marlene
