    Attended just for curiosity since my relatives are mainly from the US, Scotland or Sweden. But I need to think again. G G Grandfather from Ontario before moving south and A Swedish Grandfather who homesteaded in the NWT for a few years before moving to Montana. His brother stayed in Alberta. I now now know more about how to find them.

    It was very good webinar. I do not have Canadian ancestors that I know of. I feel like I can tackle looking if I do find someone gone to Canada.

    An absolutely fantastic webinar. I got to see into the conditions of my mother and her parents in Saskatchewan, Canada. The depression really hit hard and I was grateful for the insights that Mike gave. I can not wait to search the Census and go across the numerous provinces and find my family. Thanks so much.
