Just got notice this morning that Ancestry.ca is announcing FREE online access to 200-million immigration records.
The access is from right now to Sept 5th!
The press release says that “This unprecedented access will allow Canadians to 200 million immigration and travel records from around the world, including 13.5 million records specific to Canada. This includes the complete Canadian Passenger Lists, 1865-1935, the official records of the arrival of the majority of people accepted as immigrants in Canada during this key immigration period".
They also say that “An estimated 11.6 million Canadians or 37 per cent of its current population have ancestors included in this collection[, which also includes records for many vacationers and travellers, business people, crew members and historical figures such as foreign leaders, scientists and celebrities”.
