Welcome to the September 24, 2008 edition of Canadian Genealogy Carnival. Nine genea-bloggers participated in this 1st edition. Introduce us to your Canadian ancestors. Who were they? How did they get here? Where did they live? Did they move? Do you still have family in Canada? Share with us a bit about your Canadian roots.
So, without further adieu, let's meet them.
Sue Edminster presents Introducing...My Canadian Ancestors posted at Echo Hill Ancestors Weblog. She says her Canadian born grandfather was directly responsible for her interest in genealogy and family history. Be sure to visit and find out why.
Brenda K. Wolfram Moore presents Pennsylvanians Move Out~ to Ontario posted at HomeTown Edition - Beck, Keffer, Kratochvil, Moore, Puterbaugh, Secor, describes the route her children's paternal ancestors travelled to come to Canada.
Jessica Oswalt presents The Wives of the Two Henrys ... posted at Jessica's Genejournal, saying, "As far as I know, I do not have Canadian ancestors, but I did write about the connections a couple of my ancestors' brother's wives had with Canada."
Apple presents Canadian Roots posted at Apple's Tree, saying, "My paternal roots are in Ontario and Quebec. I haven't spent much time looking at my Canadian ancestors since my father's death in 2000. Hopefully the Carnival will inspire me to dig a little deeper." I hope you will continue to dig, too, Apple.
Miriam Robbins Midkiff of AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors has lots of Canadian ancestors. In fact she has so many she decided to present us with a series of three posts: Miriam's Got Canadians - Part I. According to Miriam "Part I is my Dad's father's Canadian roots."
"Here is Part Two!" Miriam's Got Canadians - Part II
Part Three highlights Miriam's husband's Canadian ancestry at Norm's Got Canadians.
