    The old books on university bookshelves have much to offer family historians -- and Hugh Armstrong spent several years searching through them for information.

    Hugh Armstrong's
    Genealogy Site

    first appeared on the Internet in 1996, and its content grew rapidly over the next few years as Hugh extracted more and more material.

    Hugh retired the site in 2003, and moved on to other priorities in his life. Demand for the information has stayed strong, however, so it is back, with a few updates and additions.

    Hugh also compiled many databases drawn from records about British Columbia, including an index to the 1901 census for Victoria that includes newspaper and civil registration references. That work is on the BCGenWeb site.

    Special thanks to the Alberta Family Histories Society for giving Hugh's work a home in the past couple of years.
