Marion Werle

This presentation focuses on internet-based Canadian family research that can be done from virtually anywhere. The focus is on the major years of Jewish immigration to Canada after 1880 and ranges from Jewish farming settlements in the Canadian West to immigration to larger cities. From a great-grandfather who was the rabbi of a small farm community in Saskatchewan, to a relative who was admitted under a special post-World War I immigration quota, the speaker traces Canadian research through interesting examples from her own family. The presentation covers the major sources of Canadian genealogical records ? government, commercial services, educational and other institutions ? and encompasses ship manifests, naturalization records, Canadian census and census substitutes, city directories, voter lists, 1940 residence records, records from Jewish communal institutions, vital records, cemetery data, military records, local histories and more. The talk will concentrate on the ever-expanding digital resources available to Canadian researchers.
