If you have Canadian ancestors and some unsolved questions regarding their genealogy and your family history here's your chance to try and clear them up!
The latest Topic Challenge, which will run for about two weeks comes from @JanMurphy:
One thing I have neglected so far is research in Canada, in part because the I am missing a lot of 'obvious' records like passenger lists that weren't kept during the period I need them. I would love to see more Q/As about Canadian research so I can learn more about record groups I may have missed.
To whet your appetite for the task our current top two frequently visited questions on Canada are:
- Sources for Border Crossings between Toronto and Chicago in early 1890's?
- Identifying Lemuel K. Preston's 1830s-era birth place of "Broome, L. C."?
and for those looking to answer rather than ask, we currently have two unanswered questions on Canada:
- How to find someone from Canada who has not been heard of since about 1939?
- Birth Record for Son of Scottish Surgeon Attached to Canadian Regiment During US Occupation
If you are new to the site be sure to take our 2-minute Tour.
Don't forget to give a very brief summary of your research so far into trying to answer your own question - it saves us simply covering the same ground.
Sometimes as I write, or shortly after I post, a question I find that I solve it in the process. If you are the same don't be afraid to self-answer and self-accept your answer as per an earlier discussion on Are we happy to see more self-answered questions?
Also, we are running out of challenge topics so I encourage everyone to try to contribute a new one at Vote for the next Topic Challenge!
