I was excited to discover that the Canadian Ancestry website is currently running a very enticing promotion. To celebrate Canada Day on the 1st of July, and therefore the forming of the country in 1867, the site is providing free access to its records.
More specifically, you will be able to access the site's military, immigration, census, and vital records. You will have to sign up, but this is completely free. This is a fantastic opportunity for anybody whose ancestors emigrated from Britain, with it being particularly common for Scots to make a new home for themselves in Canada. With passenger lists, BMD records, and census returns from 1871 available this promotion will no doubt allow many genealogists to fill in a few gaps in their family history.
The records are available at www.ancestry.ca, but be quick, because they are only available until the 2nd of July 2012.
