From the vendor:
The product manager has done a lot of work with Heritage Quest this year, in response to library requests for more Canadian content. The largest addition was the Canadian Census Collection, which is the same as the one found in Ancestry.com and Ancestry Library Edition (the public library version). Please see additional description below for details.
Brand-new: Newspapers.com Obituary Index which is the world’s large obituary database by far. There are more than 750M total obituary records, of which at least 6M that were published by Canadian newspapers. That means the deceased could have lived, died or were important in Canada. There may be others.
The complete UK Census Collection is also coming to HQO. It may happen before year-end.
While Find-A-Grave is a separate website that Ancestry now owns, the Find-A-Grave search engine in HQO is much more robust.
HQO has a lot of overlap with ALE content, so HQO’s primary value is the remote access to that content.
From the Vendor:
HeritageQuest Online™ combines digital, searchable images of U.S. federal census records with the digitized version of the popular UMI® Genealogy & Local History collection and other valuable content. This online database is an essential collection of unique material for both genealogical and historical researchers, with coverage dating back to the late 1700s. HeritageQuest Online includes all of the images, and extensive indexing, from the 1790 - 1930 U.S. federal censuses. It offers more than 20,000 book titles, including nearly 8,000 family histories and over 12,000 local histories. http://www.proquest.com/en-US/catalogs/databases/detail/heritagequest.shtml
Includes Canadian Census Collection, which is the same as the one found in Ancestry.com and Ancestry Library Edition (the public library version).
