Using Records in Canadian Genealogy Research
If you have Canadian ancestry and have worked on researching your family history, you probably know that locating records about your Canadian ancestors usually depends on knowing exactly where they lived so that you can search the records for that location. Some records are kept by province, but others are kept by towns, districts, and counties. Also, since Canada was formerly a colony of France and Great Britain, some records that you find might be written in French. Since Canada is a relatively new country (in comparison with Europe), you’ll also find that your ancestors immigrated there from somewhere else — probably in the last 2-7 generations. Finding where they lived before their arrival in Canada can be tricky as well.
Luckily, there are a variety of great resources available for learning more about your Canadian ancestors, and by locating all available records that were created during their lifetime it is often possible to find information that will help trace them back to their country of origin.
