Searching for our ancestors can be a lot of work.
The best advice I was given was to always start where you live.
Oddly enough, you should really begin at the cemetery. Here you’ll hopefully find several of your ancestors and begin to piece together dates and timelines.
Here are a few helpful aids to get you started:
- Thunder Bay Museum
- Thunder Bay Public Library
- City of Thunder Bay Archives
- Lakehead University Archives
