Ancestry launches family history DNA testing service in Canada TODAY!


This press release was just received -

TORONTO (June 9, 2015) – Ancestry, the world’s largest family history resource, today launched AncestryDNA in Canada. AncestryDNA allows individuals to learn about their genetic heritage and discover new family connections in Canada and around the world.

When coupled with Ancestry’s database of more than 16 billion historical records, AncestryDNA will enable family history enthusiasts and novices alike to discover even more about their own past, including the ability to find entire new cousin matches around the world.

“Historical records on Ancestry.ca provide an insight into one’s recent past, but usually go around 200-300 years, so it’s incredibly exciting to be able to offer DNA testing that takes your family history experience back many hundreds and even thousands of years,” said Christopher Labrecque, Country Manager for Ancestry Canada. “AncestryDNA enables users to learn more than ever about where they came from and discover new family lines and relatives. It really is the ultimate family history experience.”

AncestryDNA details the breakdown of one’s ethnic origins, predicting the likely locations of a person’s ancestors across 26 worldwide populations, providing a glimpse into one’s ancestral past that goes back to a time before historical records began to be kept.

The service also introduces users to new family members through DNA member matches which identifies unknown relatives pulled from more than 850,000 people who have previously taken the test. Many users can expect to be connected with 3rd and 4th cousins, allowing them to further grow their family trees and discover family members they may not have known existed.

In a recent survey, more than three-quarters of Canadians stated they would consider having their DNA tested to discover more about where their ancestors came from. Many said they know very little about their own family history, with 42 per cent indicating that they do not know where their grandparents were born, and 30 per cent stating they do not know where their ancestors lived before coming to Canada.

How AncestryDNA Works

The test uses microarray-based autosomal DNA testing to look at more than 700,000 locations across an individual’s entire genome through a simple saliva sample. The AncestryDNA approach provides a much more detailed look at one’s family history than other existing Y-chromosome and mitochondrial DNA tests that only look at specific branches of a person’s family tree.

AncestryDNA kits are now available for purchase for $149 plus shipping at http://dna.ancestry.ca/


















 

 
 

Are your ancestors from Sweden?


Do you want to know who your first Swedish ancestor was and when he or she left Sweden and arrived in Canada? Are you curious about your Swedish origins?

If so, on the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) website, there is a great place to begin your research. Here you will find a page dedicated to genealogical research on http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/immigration/history-ethnic-cultural/Pages/swedish.aspx

If your ancestor came to Canada between 1865 and 1935, you might find his or her name on the http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/immigration/immigration-records/passenger-lists/Pages/introduction.aspx

Additionally, I listened to Dear Myrt’s Wacky Wednesday last week and she talked to Jason Olsen from MyHeritage.com about Swedish Lutheran Church Records. This is a census substitute called the Household Examination Books.

Breaking the Ice 2015: HMS Erebus Revealed



You can now see and experience what the divers saw and experienced last spring when they found the Erebus, one of the ships in Franklin's Expeditions of the North West Passage. There is now an exhibit called  HMS Erebus Revealed and it is on the http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/culture/franklin/franklin2015.aspx website.

These artifacts have been lost to the Arctic Sea for nearly 160 years, and now they are available to us online to see.

Here is a photo album on the site, a dive diary, and little bits on information, like the Franklin Expedition carried 4,000 kilos of chocolate which could be put into water for as a drink of hot or cold chocolate!

Enjoy the time that you spend at the exhibit. I read all of it. and found it so interesting!

Is the Never Forgotten National Momument going to be built?


 
I had heard of this before, and I am wondering if you have heard of the statue and park that is to be built on Green Cove in Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia.

The statue – Never Forgotten National Monument – will be an eight foot statue in memory of the 114,000 Canadians and Newfoundlanders who gave their lives overseas in war and they never returned home.

Friends of Green Cove Cape Breton Highlands National Park says the park needs to be protected. They say is was never meant to house a statue such as this, and it should be moved somewhere else.

So what do you think? The project is going ahead, and it will be built on the land where it is intended to be built. It has already been approved by Parks Canada.

If you oppose the building if the park and statue, there is an online petition for you to sign at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/in-opposition-to-the-nfnmf-monument

The website of the Never Forgotten National Monument is http://www.nfnm.ca/

The Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/NeverForgottenNationalMemorial/posts/894974587208603

Northern Lights on Parliament Hill


 
On July 10, 2015, Canadian Heritage, in collaboration with its exclusive sponsor Manulife, will launch Northern Lights. This entirely new 30-minute experience of sound and light is a thrilling thematic journey through Canada's history presented in spectacular detail against the backdrop of the Parliament Buildings.
 
As momentum builds toward Canada 150 celebrations, Northern Lights reflects the important milestones in Canadian history.
 
Facts you should know about the show -
  • The inaugural season for Northern Lights runs from July 10 to September 12, 2015.
  • Northern Lights is a free bilingual show that will be presented each night on Parliament Hill for the next five summers (2015 to 2019).
  • Using state-of-the-art digital technology, the show illuminates Canadian stories of nation-building, partnership, discovery, valour, pride and vision for a country.
  • It is the sixth edition of the sound and light show on Parliament Hill since 1984.
  • Over its five-year run, the previous show, Mosaika: Canada through the eyes of its people, was seen by more than 1.1 million spectators.
I saw my first shows about 4-years ago, in the company of about a 1,000 spectators who were amazed by the show. It seems as if the whole center block of the Parliament Building came alive as it traced Canadian history through the ages.
 
Now I will have an excuse to go back this summer!

UPDATE! LAC adds more service files online


As of today, 155,110 of 640,000 service files are available online, and you can see them by going to the Soldiers of the First World War: 1914-1918 database at http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/first-world-war/first-world-war-1914-1918-cef/Pages/canadian-expeditionary-force.aspx.

Extra news items



Here are some news items which have come across the desk this week -

The Weekly Genealogists Vol 18 No 17 #Whole 737 29 April 2015 had their weekly survey once again, and this time they asked about our orphan ancestors.

Of the 4,024 who answered, 58% said they were not aware of any of their ancestors having been an orphan, and 10% said they were aware of one or more of their grandparents was an orphan, and another 10% said that they were aware of one or more of their great-grandparents was an orphan.

I do not have anyone in my family, either on my maternal or paternal side who was an orphaned.

How about you?

The Ontario Genealogical Society has officially launched their Twitter service at @OGSBarrie2015, and it looks like they are getting a good response.

The website is at https://twitter.com/OGSBarrie2015




The Department of Canadian Heritage is providing $2,300 to the Emancipation Festival through the Building Communities.

This will help support the 153rd edition of their annual summer event in Owen Sound, Ontario. This year's activities take place from July 31 to August 27 and include an artist and artisan show, speakers' forum and musical performances.

The Emancipation Festival has been holding an annual Black History celebration and commemoration event in Owen Sound since 1862. The village of Sydenham near Owen Sound was the most northerly terminus of the Underground Railway from the United States.

Read more about the Emancipation Festival at http://www.emancipation.ca/

Lastly, the latest news from the Genealogical Association of Nova Scotia is that they have a 3-month trial offering from Find My Past so that you can access through WIFI at the GANS office. This is a great database for finding those NS ancestors with origins in the UK. A reminder that they also have American Ancestors at the office. The research room is open Thursday from noon to 4 pm. Come access these great resources or check out the traditional library resources.

Battle of the Atlantic 70th Anniversary


Every year, on the first Sunday in May, Canada and the Canadian Maritime community commemorate the longest single campaign of the Second World War – the Battle of the Atlantic.

During the 2,075 days that the battle raged, members of the Royal Canadian Navy, Royal Canadian Naval Reserve, Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, Royal Canadian Air Force, Merchant Navy and Royal Canadian Artillery Gunners assigned to the protection of merchant ships took the fight to the enemy whenever and wherever possible.

The price of victory, when paid in full, would cost the Navy 33 warships and over 2,000 dead, the Air Force 350 aircraft and over 900 dead, the Merchant Navy of Canada 73 ships and over 1,700 dead. Let us remember them for their selfless contribution to international peace and security.

Services commemorating this year’s 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic will be held at naval facilities across Canada on Sunday, May 3, 2015, and everyone is encouraged to participate.

For those of us in the National Capital Region, the National Battle of the Atlantic commemoration will commence at 10:30 at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.
