Looking for ways to celebrate Victoria Day on WikiTree?

There are so many possibilities!  Here are nine ideas:

  1. Create or add to the profiles of your Canadian ancestors or Canadian notables. 
  2. Upload photos of your Canadian ancestors.  If it is a favorite photo, or there is an interesting story about it, be sure to share it with the WikiTree community.  Maybe your photo will win Photo of the Week
  3. Post a question on the G2G forum about a Canadian topic or about your Canadian brick wall.
  4. Add sources for the Canadian Unsourced Profiles.  There are subcategories by province, and a separate collection of Acadian Unsourced Profiles.
  5. Honor the Canadians who served in the military during World War I, World War II, or other military conflicts, by adding a template to their profiles identifying their service.  If they were killed or wounded in action, were POWs, or received medals, be sure to add them to WikiTree’s Roll of Honor.
  6. Take photos of Canadian tombstones and create profiles for them as part of the Canadian Cemeteries Project.
  7. Check the list of One Name Studies to see if there is one for your name.  There is a list specific to Canadian Surnames.
  8. Review the list of One Place Studies for Canada to see if there is one for your area of interest.  More information about this type of study is available on the One Place Studies Project page.
  9. Join one (or more!) of the Canadian-specific projects, including the Acadians Project, the First Peoples Project, the United Empire Loyalist Project, the Empress of Ireland Project, the Quebecois Project, or one of the many other Canadian History Projects.  If you don’t want to join the project, you may want to add the categories or tags to your Canadian profiles.

Wishing a Happy Victoria Day to All My Canadian Cousins!
