Carleton Researchers Conducting Canadian Genealogy Survey
Ottawa – Calling all genealogy buffs: Carleton University researchers want you!
A team of Carleton researchers is seeking family historians to complete an online survey detailing how and why they conduct their genealogical research. This is the first national survey of its kind and aims to capture the effects of digitization and the impact of the Internet on family history research. Over 2,100 surveys have already been completed but the researchers are making one last push before the Nov. 30 deadline.
A multibillion-dollar industry, the practice of genealogy is growing exponentially and the Canadian Genealogy Survey investigates who is doing the digging.
