Bainbridge Island Genealogical Society Destination Canada

On November 18, 2022 BIGS Presents

At 10AM, Friday, Nov 18, 2022, on Zoom,

Dave Obee will present:

Destination Canada”

When we say he wrote the book on this subject, we mean it. Dave is a distinguished British Columbian journalist and genealogist. In 2010, he published the book “Destination Canada: A Genealogical Guide to Immigration Records,” He will tell us how to find the more than 7 million people who arrived in Canada between 1815 and 1930. They came from Europe, Asia, and even from the United States.

Many sources such as ship passenger lists, border crossing records, and naturalization and citizenship documents can be found online. Other sources exist, of course, and we’ll learn about how to find information from those as well.

So, please join us on November 18th at 10AM for this informative presentation. The Zoom link will be available on our website on November 17th, the day before the meeting. Everyone Welcome! No membership necessary.
