Missing Scots - to Canada

If your Scottish ancestors emigrated to Canada then the country's national archive, Library and Archives Canada, has posted a link in its blog to a dedicated page at

www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/022-905.014-e.html

which itemizes sources that might help with your research.

There are some real gems there, for example, a huge series of Immigration Branch: Central Registry Files (RG 76), with items such as returns from the Glasgow Juvenile Delinquency Board - Girls Industrial School, Glasgow (RG 76, volume 119, file 22468, microfilm C-4782) which includes a list of children sent to Saint John, New Brunswick, between 1895 and 1906. Many, many other examples - well worth a look.

Thanks again to Chris Paton for the update.

Happy Searching All,
Pat
