Not all European emigrants chose to come to the United States. Many settled in Canada. Others made Canada a jumping-off point as they headed to another New World destination.
On Saturday, February 9, Audrey Leonard, Joy Sundrum, and Vicki Albu – of the Irish, Norwegian, and Romanian genealogy societies respectively – will examine the why and how of their ethnic group’s migration to Canada. John Vanek of the French-Canadian group will also discuss sources of immigration records in Canada.
This free program will be of interest to anyone whose ancestors spent time in Canada between the 17th and 20th centuries.
This half-day mini-conference is sponsored by the MGS Canadian Interest Group, The Irish Genealogical Society International, the Norwegian-American Genealogical Association, and the Romanian Genealogy Society.
Location: Minnesota Genealogy Center, 1385 Mendota Heights Road, Mendota Heights, Minnesota.
