I'm cleaning up my database and struggling with getting my Canadian place names historically correct. I use a 4 portion place name in the format: Town/Parish, County, State/Province, Country.
Is there some sort of list somewhere (anywhere?) that lists when the Great White North went from New France, to British America, British North America, the Province of Canada, the United Province of Canada, the Dominion of Canada, and finally Canada?
Same thing for Upper and Lower Canada, Canada East and West, Ontario and Quebec, which I think I've nailed down.
Even my schoolteacher French-Canadian brother-in-law is at a loss to help me.
