Hello! I'm taking a dual certificate in Canadian Records and Librarianship. I'm working in a library and have become hooked on genealogy! Particularly interested in my Crawford relatives from Ontario and the Warren branch from New Brunswick. I hope to be able to connect with people who might know about these ancestors. Sorry for the flower pic, but I didn't have any up-to-date pics...always behind the camera!

Hi! I'm Lori Lyn, a new member of this group. I am taking the course on Social Media and one of the assignments was to join an NIGS group and introduce myself. This one interested me because I am interested in my many time great grandfather Thomas Sumner who was a Loyalist. I also have some other family members from different lines who stayed briefly in Canada, but alas, all my direct lines were only in Canada for a generation or two before coming to the US. I have been doing genealogy for many years and have a blog at I love learning about the historical and social context in which my ancestors lived.

I'm searching for relatives that moved from Saskatchewan to the Trail/Merritt/Vernon B.C. area in the 1930s.  I know her married name was Chambers and her maiden name was Rundvall.  I also know that the Chambers were living in Merritt sometime in the 1950s, but can't find anything anywhere.  Suggestions?

I found Jane Eliza Carew 1781–1882, BIRTH 1781 • Ireland, DEATH 08 MAR 1882 • Bury, Quebec, Canada in tree posted by alan_lundstedt, USA. Spouse shown as James Hanright.

There is also info posted in tree by steve hanright.

I think if you drill down into these records and trees you can find out more. Some record from Drouin Collection are in French and my French is very bad.

Hi all. I have almost completed my dual certificate in English and Canadian Records, which has taken over 8 years! Phew! I only have 12 modules left, which still sounds like a lot......

I was born and raised in the South West of England and most to Canada over 10 years ago. I also have a BA in History. I started researching my family history from the age of 15, and have been hooked ever since. 

My main areas of research are Canadian and English records with a focus on Military and Home Children research. I am based in Ottawa and hope to start my own genealogy business.

Hello all!  Seems pretty quiet here but I hope to meet more fellow students.  I started my Genealogy Certificate Program in January and have completed 7 out of the 9 Basic courses.  I start Vital Records Part 1 and Analysis and Mentoring Part 1 in March, though I have already been working ahead using the printed materials.  I see that the Analysis course in unique from the others and a little more challenging.  I hope to do as well on itt as the others but think I may take more time with it. 

I am a teacher.  I have a BA with a double major in Archaeology and Anthropology and I have a BEd.  (Bachelor of Education).  I have taken some Criminology courses online but never pursued that further.  I have been a hobbyist genealogist for many, many years but was so excited to find NIGS and actually pursue it academically!

My Canadian research interests are in Quebec, and Ontario primarily but do also extend into Alberta and Saskatchewan.

I am eager to meet others and make contacts!  I am currently in Saskatchewan.

Well it took me 4 courses in to stumble into this group!  I'm a library technician in an academic library in Manitoba. I have a B.A. and a 2 year diploma in library science.
