Library and Archives Canada

Library and Archives Canada is vitally important to genealogists who are researching their family members who came to Canada. The Jewish Genealogy Society of Montreal was instrumental in the indexing of Naturalization records in the early part of the 20th century. For a nominal fee, a family member can apply to the government of Canada to have the documents photocopied and sent to you. Naturalization papers will provide country of origin, town of birth, birth dates, family members, addresses, sponsors etc. One can also access Census records which are another key starting point for family researchers.
