This webinar will put those techniques into practice by following three different families (Canadian, French-Canadian & African Canadian) through the census records.
This class was presented to a live webinar (online seminar) audience on February 20, 2013. 1 hour 26 minutes, plus 5 pages of handouts.
About the author:
- Even though I have used Canadian Census records before, I still learned a lot that I didn't know. Thank you, Kathryn. Excellent!
- Excellent presentation, and plenty of information I was not familiar with.
- Glad for the timeline info on the upper-/lower-, east-/west-, New France, etc of Canada.
- I didn't know much about Canadian census to start and learned a lot this evening.
- Great speaker, tons of information.
- I now can search the Canadian Census fully aware of what is to be found on each - thank you so very much for having this webinar.
- Learned a lot! I never realized there were additional schedules to the census, will have to go back and search again for more information.
- Really interesting to get more information about Canadian censuses! And the approach was useful since we could learn more about the limitations and advantages of each census schedule.
- Such a good one for me as I have so many ancestors that came from Canada, both French from New France (mostly) and Scottish and English.
- The webinar provided good information to get me started on using Canadian census records. Much appreciated. Thanks.
- Very helpful even though have done Canadian research for 20 years.
- Very thorough and excellent presentation. Even for an expreienced Canadian genealogist such as myself, it was informative and well organized.
