It is important to learn the history of the ethnic, racial, and religious groups your ancestors belonged to. You might, for example, study a history of the Acadian French in the Maritime Provinces or the Germans from Russia in Saskatchewan. This historical background can help you identify where your ancestors lived and when they lived there, where they migrated, the types of records they might be listed in, and other helpful family history information.

Canadian ethnic groups are broadly divided among:

Native peoples (American Indians and Inuit or Eskimos).

Colonizers (the French and the British).

Later immigrant groups.

There are unique records for most minorities in Canada, including histories, newspapers, and periodicals. Many newspapers and magazines were published in languages other than English or French, but only a few still survive. They are listed in:

Corpus Almanac & Canadian Sourcebook. Don Mills, Ont.: Corpus Information Services, annual. (Family History Library book 971 B5c.)

Some ethnic groups also have their own religious organizations, such as the Ukrainian Orthodox and Roumanian Orthodox churches. Contact appropriate ethnic organizations for further information.

Various local and national societies have been organized to gather, preserve, and share the cultural contributions and histories of many groups. One example is:
