The end of the Revolutionary War saw the beginning of mass migration of Scottish emigrants to Canada. Join Toronto Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society (OGS) and Scottish genealogy expert Christine Woodcock for this three-session online lecture series. We’ll look at who emigrated to Canada and why, what they experienced on their arrival, and what records you can access to learn more about your Scottish ancestry.

  • March 9: Scottish settlements in Atlantic Canada
  • March 16: Scottish settlements in Ontario
  • March 23: Scottish settlers in the West

Registration is now open! The cost is only $20 ($15 for OGS members)
