Subject: Seeking Vital Records in Canada
From: "Henry Lifton" <henlif@elsfl.com>

It is my understanding, and I learned this Wednesday at the meeting of the
JGS of
Palm Beach County, that Canada will only release Canadian records to a
Canadian.
Actually, this restriction is for records that are released under Canada'a
"Access to Information" laws, and says that such records can be released
only to Canadian citizens or anyone residing in Canada. The primary type of
records that it applies to (that genealogists frequently request) are
Naturalization records.
