Abstract

This paper looks at the collaborative efforts by the Department of National Defence's (DND) Directorate of History and Heritage (DHH) Archives to provide online access to its military records. Partnerships will be discussed with: the Archives Association of Ontario and its online archival network Archeion regarding fonds level descriptions; university military history programs regarding finding aids, guides, card catalogues and other research tools; Ancestry.ca regarding military records of genealogical interest to family history researchers; Library and Archives Canada (LAC) and the Canadian Naval Technical History Association (CNTHA) regarding oral interviews with Naval Engineers and industry officials on naval construction and repair programs in Canada; and the Royal 22nd Regiment Museum and the digitization of a complete fonds. With these present and future actions and initiatives, the DHH Archives will be able to make available a maximum number of its archives.
