I was perusing the Canadian genealogy resources and came across The Archive CD Books Project.
The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
The project began in the UK in March 2000, and has now developed world-wide, with each country scanning and producing its own books on CD. The Canadian branch was formed during 2003 and has been open for business since March 2004.
Their Canadian download page links to many historical books (with a license agreement) and at the bottom of the page there are well prepared blank forms that can be used to transcribe records (no license required). These include:
- Vital Records Birth, Marriage, Death Blank Forms
- Canadian Census Blank Forms
