Late with the reply - and I think someone else may have mentioned Angus
Baxter's book, In Search of Your Canadian Roots: How to Trace Your Canadian
Ancestors (3rd ed. 2000: Genealogical Publishing Co.) Includes
bibliographical references (p. 365-371) and index.
Another good one is Althea Douglas' Tools of the Trade for Canadian
Genealogy: A Guide for Family Historians Researching in Canada (Toronto :
Ontario Genealogical Society, 2000).
One of the things I suggest to my classes is to always check to see which
libraries near you that have good genealogical collections also have an
online catalog. This is the best place to find what's out there - even if
you hope to purchase a book - and definitely if you want to use some good
old standbys no longer in print.
Out of curiosity, thought I'd check the Houston Public Library's catalog
to see what we have at Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research (a
free-standing part of HPL). 254 listings, including extensive chapters in
such book's as Val Greenwood's The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy
(rpt. 2000 Genealogical Publishing Co).
If you care to check out HPL, go to http://www.hpl.lib.tx.us/hpl/ and you
can also access Clayton's holding by going direct to
http://www.hpl.lib.tx.us/clayton/ and of course, to Clayton Library Friends
