Description: Your Maple Leaf Connection! The records of Canada – both Anglophone and Francophone – are rich with information of the settlement of North America, resulting in the country now called Canada. The settlements of the French and English date from 1604 and reflect the history of these populations also in Europe. Learn about how to connect across the border and the records that can help you!
