Thank you Family Tree Magazine for picking this blog as one of the Top 40 in this year’s list.
They say that –
“This daily blog about Canadian genealogy, heritage and history is crafted by Elizabeth Lapointe, a member of the Ontario Genealogical Society and editor of its newsletter. Though not technically an official blog of the society, this newsy and tip-filled site reads like a lively one”.
And we must not forget the other Canadian blogs that were mentioned –
• The Armchair Genealogist
• Olive Tree Genealogy
My congratulations to all of the bloggers who made and didn’t make the list.
It is sponsored by Family Tree Magazine, and there is a fee.
And there are a series of Canadian Webinars given by Canadian genealogist Kathryn
Lake Hogan about Mapping Your Ancestors' Footsteps to be given in

Records and Border Crossing Records to be given in October.

Booklet #1 - The War of 1812: Canada and the United States
The booklet, “The War of 1812: Canada and the United States”, gives a synopsis of the causes of the War, and details the battles that took place (who, where, and when), and which included British forces, Blacks, and Aboriginal warriors who fought on both sides of the conflict.
Booklet #2 – Migration: Canada and the United States
These headings offer good examples of those who came to Canada, or of Canadians who left for the U.S, and why. The booklet gives a synopsis of what records to look for, the books written on the subject, where to find online resources, and a bonus list of some famous Canadians who migrated to the U.S.
