How Can I Research a Family From Canada?

Canada Genealogy

Are you searching for sources to find your Canadian roots? Is it a struggle? Here are some places for you to do some research during your genealogy quest:

  • Try checking the records at the Library and Archives of Canada if you are having trouble finding information. The library is in Ottawa if you are wishing to visit the actual site. Otherwise, try an Internet search for Library and Archives Canada for more information.
  • Do an Internet search for AVITUS, which is the Directory of Canadian Genealogical Resources with links to other sites.
  • Try searching the Canadian Archival Information Network (CAIN) online. This network provides the ability for a researcher to search other archives in Canada.
  • Searching the genealogy of a family from a particular country is very vast; these two places should help you in your Canadian search.
