I have relatives that emigrated to Canada in 1909, any idea where I can look for information about them?
Many thanks

There is not much available online.

Have you done a search on these Boards? Try "Canadian" in Quick Search. One that is returned is:-

Ancestry have some records. Post the family (names & dob's) - either on here, or PM to me - and we will see what we can find.
