Christine is based in Canada and is therefore well place adnd experienced, to tell us how best to find and track our Scots ancestors and ancestral cousins in Canada. We know that many Scots emigrated to Canada in the 19th century, many more before that and subsequently, and some of us have probably already discovered how detailed and useful Canadian records can be, so it will be invaluable to discover exactly what is available in the various States of Canada, how access may differ from one place to another, or whether research is actually easier than we may think!

The Anglo Scottish Family History Society is a branch of the Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society (MLFHS) based at Manchester Central Library. The ‘Anglo Scots’ branch was formed in 1982 by members whose ancestral origins were in Scotland and their aim was, and remains, the exploration of those ancestral roots and their subsequent links with the Manchester area. That research has widened and we now have members from America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and more. We hold regular meetings to share stories and research, our members have created a large database of Scottish-linked material, and we continue to support and encourage ongoing research into the Scottish diaspora.
