Register for Friday's webinar: From Grandmother to First European Landowner of Canada by Lianne Kruger

In the 1980s, my grandmother gave me her parents’ names, their wedding date and the names of her 15 siblings. From that information I researched from the early 1900s in Northwest Ontario back to the first European landowner in Canada. I will explain each step I took along the way, how I did it then, and how to do it now. Although, the process is the same these steps are done so much easier and faster today with today’s technology and the internet.
