Ontario Ancestors Halton Peel Branch webinar — Migration into, out of, and within Canada

The Halton Peel Branch of Ontario Ancestors will host a free webinar, In Search of Home: Migration into, out of, and within Canada, presented by Dave Obee, on Sunday, April 18, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Understanding the flow of people will help you understand how your family fits in the history of the country. In some cases, records are available in Canada and in other countries, but in other cases researcher will need to consider social history and traditional migration routes to understand the lives of their ancestors. Includes a look at the social history of the arrival of the railway, which helped bring massive development to the four western provinces. The railways brought settlers, and helped them get their goods to markets. The railway companies had a keen interest in bringing settlers, and ran colonization schemes designed to entice people to the West.

Register here to watch the presentation on Zoom.
