  • Welcome to genealogy and history at GoAncestry! We are striving to focus upon emigration from primarily European countries and subsequent immigration to North American regions; Canada being one.  Many of our users are looking back towards their ancestors, but we also wish to help those in the homelands find the paths their descendants took after they departed.  We are willing to assist our homeland researchers in any way that we can.  Our forums allow for interaction, and we can provide at least the basic translation service to help in our collaborations.  If you are looking for your ancestors or descendants, please join us, we will work together if that will help.

The table below lists the Provinces/Territories and their respective Capitals. This is a good starting place when preparing for research about ancestors. Though maps change over time and rulers as well, records of specific localities may still be found in the current Province archives. Sometimes there are even challenges finding the right alignment of a record to the archive based upon the date the historical record was created. If the Provinces are highlighted, they contain a link to subsequent focused information. If they are not highlighted, information has not been developed for that Region. If there is currently no guide listed, you can consider volunteering some of your time or information. Please refer to the sitewide collaboration link above to share information or ask questions.
