Just a reminder, today is the deadline (April 10th) to tell your stories.
"Have you discovered an ancestor who had an impact on Canada? We want to hear all about it!"
Did they play a part in building the nation? Maybe they helped raise Canada’s profile on the world stage. Or, perhaps, they were the black sheep in your family history.
Now is your chance to share your story.
We’re preparing to launch a major Canadian record collection and we’d love to make your story part of the celebration. If you have a fascinating story you’d love to share, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details such as:
Your full account of the ancestor you discovered and their personal story.
Your ancestor’s full name and all key vital dates available – birth, marriage (when, where and to whom), children, occupation, etc.
Any historical records you’ve found through your search – Passenger List records, Military records, Canadian Census records, etc.
Any additional mementos you’ve discovered along the way – photos, medals, awards, etc.
Also, don’t forget to include your name, where you are from and your contact details including your phone number and email address.
As always, your privacy is important to us and we will not discuss your story externally without your approval.
The deadline for submitting is Friday, April 10, 2009. We look forward to hearing your stories and wish you the best of luck on your ongoing journey.
