How to trace Canadian ancestors

Search for your ancestors in our expansive collection of detailed and unusual historical records for all 10 of Canada's provinces. These family history records offer a bevy of personal stories with newspapers, location-based details with land surveys and even complete pedigrees researched by family historians.

The easiest way to search for these records on site is to go to 'Search' in your main navigation bar and then select 'Search A-Z of all Records' from the drop down menu. This will bring you to a new search page where you can filter your search on the left hand side by selecting 'Canada'

You can then search your key words and this will filter all Canadian record sets we hold within the results.
