What's New? > Canadian places

I have updated Canadian places to put the 13 Canadian provinces in top-level list of places, along with US states.  So instead of choosing "Canada" and then "Ontario", choose "Ontario" first, and then the county or municipality in Ontario, and then the city or town.

The list of counties and municipalities comes from the lists as used on Findagrave.  For counties, I left in "Co" on the end.  For municipalities and districts, I removed the extra wording, leaving just the name to save screen space.

  • If you don't know the county look it up on Wikipedia or other site.  Don't leave it blank just because you don't know..
  • If you know the province, but cannot find a county or municipality, leave this blank and enter the city.
  • If you can't find the province, enter "Canada", and the city.

I will work on updating existing entries to fill in the county or municipality.
