WDYTYA? Live Handout

For those who were not able to pick up a handout from the talk Glenn Wright and I gave on Saturday, here is the text.

Researching English Emigrants to Canada and their Descendants
Before looking at Canadian records ensure you have established a unique identity of the migrant in the UK and the latest date they are found in UK records. Did they leave as part of a group or family?
If after 1890 check the UK outgoing passenger lists at FindMyPast or Ancestry. Check the Canadian incoming passenger lists if available at Ancestry. Consider checking US passenger lists.
