I have found quite a few living in and around Montreal and found birth cert. and marriage cert.Then the families scattered most ending up in Ottawa,Ontario Canada. Its so hard to research because of the privacy act. I’m now stuck and hit a dead end. My 4th great grandfather lived in Ireland but can’t find anything.

My other question which is not related to Ireland but how do you find someone that left England came to Newfoundland which was still British before it became Canada which I think was 1949. I’ve hit a dead end there as well. It would be interesting on your live feed to do something for Canadians.

I have been able to obtain much information on the families I am tracing from Ireland to Canada. One of the great things in the Canadian census is that it gives the religious affiliation of each family. My families were all Catholic, but so many Irish families used similiar names that checking for religion saved me from attaching the wrong people to my tree. The down-side for the census is that it is about two decades behind the U.S. in releasing the census records. Also, don’t assume that just because your family came from Ireland that they didn’t settle for a time in Quebec I have found some records in French in Quebec. Hope this helps a little.
