LAC re-designs genealogy section of its website

Library and Archives Canada has re-designed the Genealogy and Family History section on its website. The layout is now better organized and better suited to the way most genealogists think and conduct their research.

The new main sections are Where to Begin, Most Requested Records, What You Can Do, Visit Us, and Contact Us. A menu on the left includes Ethnic Groups with heritage online kits and Topics provides explanations of record collections, such as immigration records. Across the top of the screen, a menu bar provides a wide selection of drop-down menus.

A message on the Home page advises that more re-designs are in the works, which perhaps explains why I sometimes found it difficult to return to where I had been.

Bottom line, the re-design made me take a look at the website and discover sections I had never explored or forgotten about.  It is well worth a re-visit.
