A Quiltwork of Lives

Oh Canada Links

As a Canadian I have done research in my home province of Newfoundland as well as Ontario. My husband’s family is from Alberta and someone in Greensboro wanted info on doing Russian research in Saskatchewan. I will touch briefly on each of these areas and share what sources I have that may not be available through Family Search or other common sites. I have tried to find those that are free though some may ask for donations to help them keep up their web pages.

Russian - Library and Archives Canada

Emigration from Russia was often restricted throughout the nineteenth century so most people who immigrated to Canada from Russia did so through special arrangement for groups, such as German Mennonites from southern Russia who settled in Saskatchewan. Between 1899 and 1914, thousands of Doukhobors settled in Canada.
