  • Did Your Cdn Immigrant Come Via NY By Rick Roberts. Recently, while searching the free online passenger lists at CastleGarden.org I encountered a result that left me speechless (not an easy accomplishment).
  • Royal Canadian Rifles 1840-1883 By Rick Roberts. The Royal Canadian Rifles was a British Army regiment that was mostly made up of long-serving soldiers who were nearing retirement age. The military brass predicted that 'old' soldiers would be reluctant to do anything that might result in the loss of their army pensions. The fact that the long-serving men had not deserted up until this time also helped to ensure the success of the regiment.
  • Birth, Marriage & Death Records By Fawne Stratford-Devai. The government registration of births, marriages and deaths, is usually referred to as civil registration. In Canada, the responsibility for all aspects of civil registration falls to the individual provinces and territories.

  • Finding Lumbermen Ancestors By Ryan Taylor. The first things the Canadian pioneer had to do was chop down trees. Throughout the nineteenth century there was always a need for lumbermen, first to help the settlers chop and then in larger scale lumbering operations. These could be found upriver in New Brunswick, in Quebec and on both sides of the Ottawa River.
  • Finding Your "Strays" By Sandra Devlin. Genealogically speaking, a stray is a person described in a record as being from, or connected with, a place outside the area in which an event took place. For example, someone dies in one place, but was born in another.

  • Passenger Lists 1865 - 1919 By Ryan Taylor. The hot news in Canadian genealogical circles is about passenger lists. When our ancestors crossed the Atlantic, the ship's captain was obliged to make a list of the people on board his boat. Sometimes the list was made for the authorities at the port of embarkation, whether it was Liverpool, Le Havre, Amsterdam or Hamburg.
