An Introduction to Family History for Canadian Finns - March 2015

On Sunday last, many of us met at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby, BC for An Introduction to Family History for Canadian Finns, sponsored by Vancouver's Canadian Friends of Finland. A very pleasant afternoon indeed. Thank you to the Friends for organizing this event and for inviting me to participate.

Here is a .pdf version of my same handout on North American Immigration and Census. This includes starting links for your research. If you have a specific question or would like further information, please contact me.

The Scandinavian Genealogy Group, sponsored by the Scandinavian Cultural Society and the British Columbia Genealogical Society, meets in Burnaby at the Scandinavian Centre, 6540 Thomas St
 Burn­aby, BC V5B 4P9, most months. Our next meetings will be Saturday, April 18 and 16 May, 2015. All interested in researching their Scandinavian roots are welcome. These are informal sessions where experienced members will help where needed with on-line and off-line research.
