This week we are diving into researching place names in Canada. We'll be looking at some places that have changed names, places that have vanished, and why some places were given a particular name. 
Join me and our panelists, Christine Woodcock, Lianne Kruger and Mags Gaulden as we wear our red and white in celebration of Canada Day, and talk about how researching place names in Canada can help us in our family history.
