Rideau Heritage Route Genealogy

Communities along the Rideau Heritage route originally began to be settled in the late 1700's and 1800's. Settlers came from Europe either for a new beginning or to escape some foreign pressure. In our area, thousands of Irish immigrants were used for labour to build the Rideau Canal. When did your ancestor immigrate to Ontario? Did they help build this historical marvel? This section will provide information on finding resources to help you answer these questions. www.rideauheritageroute.ca/en/aboutrideau/genealogy.asp
