UK to Canada Genealogy: Linking your UK Ancestors to Canadian Genealogy Resources

Since before the internet I have been interested in genealogy, discovering how to research my family history. Over the past few years, I have volunteered to help researchers at local family history fairs. At one of these events I had the opportunity to be an ‘Ask the Expert’ (which I continue to do) and spent a lot of time explaining where to find resources for Canadian genealogy. This led to the creation of this blog in 2015 which is intended to answer questions and highlight unique resources found in each province. UK to Canada Genealogy has 3 pages: Canadian Genealogy by Province; UK Ancestors to Canada and Digitized Canadian Genealogy. You will find many useful links to family history societies, where to find Birth, Marriage and Death information, as well as fabulous resources on unique archives, collections and stories found in newspaper articles. There is also a Finding Your Ancestors Series and many articles listed in the ‘Index’. Sign up to receive these bi-weekly articles to stay up to date on the discoveries.
