To help you get started with workhouse records, we’ve got an extract from an 1861 record of workhouse inmates.

Find ancestors who emigrated to Canada
To help you trace your forebears who emigrated to Canada, we’ve got an exclusive extract from a 1929 book about the resettlement by Lord Selkirk of people from the Isle of Skye and other places in the British Isles to various parts of Canada, in particular Prince
Edward Island. The author of this book, Malcolm A. MacQueen, is descended from a family which lived for many years on the Isle of Skye, one of the inner Hebridean Islands of Scotland. The book describes the experiences of the settlers themselves and mentions many by name. This extract is provided by Archives CD Books Canada. To download this resource, please click here.
