A PRESENTATION AT OGS CONFERENCE 2017
Established in the 1830s and before, societies like St. Andrew’s, St. George’s, St. Patrick’s and many other ethnic-based organizations provided guidance, financial and social support for their countrymen and women arriving in Canada. This session will look at the activities and surviving records of these organizations, and how their presence may have influenced the way your ancestors settled into their new homes—yet stayed connected with the old.
