Researching In Ontario: Find Your Trillium Connection


Researching In Ontario: Find Your Trillium Connection

This presentation will provide participants an initial plan and resources to research their ancestors that lived in Ontario.

What You Will Learn

The records of Ontario begin before the formation of what is now called Canada. Native Americans lived here for centuries with European settlements initially a part of the fur trade. By 1668, the first European settlement at Sault Ste Marie and records for “Quebec”, “Upper Canada” and “Canada West” and more created the sources that carry us from the early settlements into the modern Canadian census records, vital records and more that will link you to your ancestor. Learn about how to connect across the border and the records that can help you!
