One of the more difficult things to do in genealogy is to determine where your original immigrant ancestor came from. Often we know the country they came from but not the specific place town, parish, county etc.

When tracing the origins of an immigrant ancestor the answer is most often found in the records of the country they emigrated to. Until a solid paper trail of evidence has been established back to the first immigrant, researching in the old country is virtually impossible. This guide is designed to provide an overview of the many sources available to help in identifying the origin of immigrants to Canada.

Fawne Stratford-Devai discusses physical resources and up-to-date online resources where researchers can find information to help locate their immigrant ancestor's place of origin.

Topics include:
  • Getting Started
  • Understanding Migration Patterns
  • Work from the known to the unknown
  • Researching Family and Friends
  • Record Sources for Documenting Immigrants in North America
    • Published Genealogies
    • Local Histories and Biographies
