5th Edition Canadian Genealogy Carnival

Welcome to the 5th Edition of the Canadian Genealogy Carnival.

This edition of the CGC is all about favourite Canadian vacations. Where did your ancestors like to spend their summer holidays? Did your family enjoy a favourite beach or cottage? Or did your family travel from sea to shining sea? Photographs of these holiday places are encouraged.

J.W. presents Yesterday's Vancouver posted at The Collective Picture, saying, "Old photographs of Vancouver and a discussion about the history that has defined what this city is today."

Evelyn Yvonne Theriault presents Plattsburgh, New York - Montreal's Vacation Spot posted at A Canadian Family.

Brett Payne presents Summer holidays at Grand Beach, Lake Winnipeg, circa 1920 posted at Photo-Sleuth, saying, "My grandpa and his friends spent some of the summer holidays in 1919/1920 at Grand Beach on the eastern shores of Lake Michigan. I'm hoping one day to identify some of those friends!"

Brenda presents Perfect Summers posted at Brenda Dougall Merriman, saying, "You can take the girl away from Lake Superior but you can't take Lake Superior away from the girl. Amethyst Harbour was always paradise for kids."

Janet Iles presents Summer Vacations - Canadian Carnival of Genealogy posted at Janet the researcher, saying, "Janet shares some of her memories of trips to the Manitoulin Island for summer vacations."

M. Diane Rogers presents Canadian Genealogy Carnival - Canadian Vacations posted at CanadaGenealogy, or, 'Jane's Your Aunt'.

That concludes this edition. Thanks to those who participated.
