3 Things Non-Canadians Don't Know About Canada Day

CanadaDay

Canada Day is July 1st. Are you celebrating? If you’re living in Canada or a Canadian, chances are the answer is an enthusiastic yes! For those who aren’t familiar with this Canadian holiday, here are three facts to introduce you to the celebrations.

  1. Canada Day, originally known as Dominion Day, celebrates the British North America Act which united the British provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia with Quebec and Ontario on July 1, 1867. The uniting of the federation was somewhat influenced by the American Civil War. There was a concern by some in Canada that a weak federation could make Canada vulnerable to the Americans. They also saw the cause of the Civil War due to a weak American federal government.[1]

 

  1. It’s celebrated a lot like the American 4th of July but it’s not an “Independence Day.” It’s easy to assume that Canada Day is the Canadian equivalent of the United States' Independence Day but it's celebrated for a totally different reason. July the 4th has to do with the United States’ independence from Britain but Canada still had a strong connection to Britain after 1867. In fact, it wasn’t until 1982 that the Canada Act transferred power to the Canadian Parliament.[2] If you’re in Canada, you can expect fireworks, parades, BBQ’s and other celebrations on Canada Day that are reminiscent of the 4th of July celebrations.

 

  1. It’s not the only Canadian holiday on July 1st. Yes, Canada has two holidays on July 1st. The other uniquely Canadian day, is Quebec’s Moving Day. Canada Day celebrations in Quebec may not be as exuberant because of Moving Day which is the  traditional day that people move.  According to the Montreal Gazette newspaper, 80% of  residential leases end on June 30th and 100,000 Montreal residents are expected to move either on July 1st or around that time.[3] This practice stems from colonial times and the concerns that tenant farmers not face eviction during winter months. To avoid moving in the cold weather, leases ended on May 1st. The day was later changed to July 1st.


Happy Canada Day! It's a great time to also do some genealogy and if you are ready to learn more about your Canadian ancestors, Legacy has  webinars that can explain everything about your Canadian roots.

Make Sure to Ask

Make Sure to Ask

When I was growing up, I worked at my local city library. I was a Reference Page which meant that I worked in the basement and retrieved magazines for patrons doing research, amongst other things. The magazines in our holdings ranged from the newer popular magazines to bound volumes dating back 100 years. The library’s  basement also housed  some of their archival collections. That archive included all kinds of items from documents to material items like textiles. It was a wonderful place to work for someone who loved to read and had lots of questions about history.

IMG_8327

Because of my early job experience, I know that libraries, archives, and museums often have great collections kept out of the public’s view. It’s not that they are trying to hide them, it’s just that they don’t have the storage space in the public places to store everything. And quite frankly some of the items, while important, are not “popular” and rarely requested. Because of this, sometimes the public or interested researchers don’t know everything a repository has. I was reminded of this recently after I presented to the Pomona Valley Genealogical Society which meets at the Pomona (California) Public Library.

The Pomona Public Library has been around since the 1880s but their current building dates to 1965. The Library is old enough to have a basement and their basement  includes bound periodicals, like the ones I retrieved as a teenager,  and their special collections  as well as the collections of the nearby genealogical and historical societies.

When the president of the society asked if I wanted to see their collection, I had to say yes. Afterall I absolutely love library basements. They had stacks of everything from genealogical periodicals to family group sheets donated by members over the society's 50 year history.

Because I’m always anxious to pass on information about great collections, I asked, “how do people know  what you have?” Like most collections the answer is not simple. Most people don’t know this collection exists. Most societies don’t have the volunteers or time to make information about their vast collections available. Just like libraries and archives, there is simply not enough time, money or people to make collections easily available to everyone.  While The Pomona Valley Genealogical Society has an  ongoing indexing project that is available in printed form from the reference librarian, there’s no digitized version of what they own.

IMG_8328

It’s important to remember that not only is not everything online but online catalogs don’t tell the entire story. It’s by making contact with societies and repositories in the places where your ancestor lived that you can learn more about what is available. If you have not done this, most likely you have not done a thoroughly exhaustive search of what is available for your ancestor because there are clues in the basement.

Take some time to locate the repositories and societies in the place your ancestor lived. Search their online catalog, digital collections, and finding aids but then contact them and ask about what other collections they house that might be helpful to your research.

Register for Webinar Wednesday: 5 Steps to Becoming a Good Ancestor by Marian Pierre-Louis

Register
 
Genealogists are very good at researching and learning about their ancestors' lives. But sometimes they forget that it is important to provide information about themselves for their own descendants. In this presentation we'll provide five ways to leave traces of yourself (and your research) for those who come after you.
 
Join us and Marian Pierre-Louis for the live webinar Wednesday, June 26, 2019. Register today to reserve your virtual seat. Registration is free but space is limited to the first 1,000 people to join that day. When you join, if you receive a message that the webinar is full, you know we've reached the 1,000 limit, so we invite you to view the recording which should be published to the webinar archives within an hour or two of the event's conclusion.
