Genealogy and the Law in Canada [Genealogist's Reference Shelf Series]
Dundurn Press (in association with the Ontario Genealogy Society)
Digital records and broad access to the Internet have made it easier for genealogists to gather relevant information from distant sources and to share the information they have gathered. The law, however, remains tied to particular geographic locations. This book discusses how specific laws – access to information, personal data protection, libel, copyright, and regulation of cemeteries – apply to anyone involved in genealogical research in Canada.
