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.

Welcome Alison! Let us know if you have any questions.

Hello!  I am new to GenealogyWise, having been introduced to it through the "Social Media Tools for the Wise Genealogist" course.  As usual, I left one or two questions until the very last day I am eligible to submit them (the one about GenealogyWise included.) 

I am an MLIS graduate from St. Thomas, Ontario Canada and have been working on the Canadian Certificate for a few years now.  My main geographic area of interest in Canada is Montreal and the south shore.  I am looking forward to exploring the GenealogyWise site and all it has to offer.

There I a lot of information regarding Canadian Records on the Internet. It will also depend on the dates you are trying to research and the province(s).

For Ontario this is the best book to use, can be purchased through globalgenealogy:
