For many of us who are interested in Western New York genealogy, the U.S.-Canadian border has a special place and role in our research. Our countries’ shared history and geography have resulted in the regular movement of ancestors both to and from Canada.

Join us as Steve Fulton, UE, the Chair of the Niagara Peninsula Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, discusses essential Canadian history, major genealogical resources, and privacy considerations.
