52 Ancestors: Week 7 – Love and Marraige on Canadiana


This week\’s 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks prompt is \”Love\”. So this week I\’m looking documents on the Canadiana website. This site has been much talked about in the Canadian genealogy community. It used to be accessed through subscription, but is now just recently free to use.

I used in the search engine the key words \”Love\” and \”Marriage\”, and got over 100,000 hits where the word \’Love\” and/or \”Marriage\” has appeared in the text. I\’ve gone through the results to find some publications to help you find mention of your Canadian ancestors.
