Search Canadian Genealogy Records Free Through July 2
Posted by Diane

In honor of Canada Day, which celebrates the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North American Act uniting three colonies into the country of Canada, Ancestry.ca is offering free access to 40 million historical records today through July 2.
 
The free records cover the years leading up to and following Confederation and come from some of the largest collections on Ancestry.ca, including:
  • Canadian passenger lists and ocean arrivals: These name the masses of people who arrived by ship at port cities across Canada
  • The 1871 Census of Canada: This was the first census Canada conducted as a nation. It reveals household members, ages, jobs, parents' birthplaces and more.
  • Birth, marriage and death records: These come from British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.
  • Military records: These come from the War of 1812 and World War I, as well as lists of officers from 1832 and 1863 to 1939.
Visit www.ancestry.ca to search the free databases. You'll need to register for a free Ancestry.ca account to view your full search results.

Everything appears to be free except the Drouin collection...not sure why...

Interesting--it's in the list of free records, but not marked with the same "free" icon as the others. I'll remove mention of it from this post. Thanks for your message!

Hi from Canada!
My membership already gives me access to these records, but thank you anyway!!

Any news or ideas of when we might see Canadian databases for:
- WWII (World War Two)
- Canadian Census after 1911
- transcribed birth records (Ontario hopefully) for the more decades in the 1900's? They are available on Microfiche and take 6 weeks to 6 months to get via inter-library loans. I wish you had them all transcribed

Thanks,
I love ancestry.ca
