Ancestors Who Called Canada and the U.S.A. Home

Presented by Annette Burke Lyttle, sponsored by the Irish Genealogical Society International.

Movement from the United States to Canada was unrestricted and unrecorded until April 1908. The U.S. only began recording the entry of Canadians along its northern border in 1894. Before that, many thousands of people, including our Celtic ances-tors, lived cross-border lives without visas, work permits, passports, or immigration records. Learn how to find these elusive ancestors.
