This table lists colonial governors and lieutenant governors, governors general, provincial lieutenant governors, premiers and commissioners of Canada, its provinces and territories who have profiles on WikiTree that are not yet connected to the main tree.

  • The "Branch Size" number is the total number of profiles in the branch that contains that person's profile. (If the branch size is 1, it means that that person has not been linked to any parent, spouse, or child's profile.)
  • The "Name" is the full name for that person, or the name by which they are commonly known.
  • The "Last Name At Birth" is normally that notable's last name at birth. (If that notable is from a culture which does not use last names, then the Last Name At Birth will be whatever is used in that person's WikiTree ID.)
  • The "Country" cell includes any country where somebody from that branch was born. (Note that many branches spread over more than one country, so you may miss some branches that are at least partly in the country you're looking for if you sort the table by this column. To make sure that you find all of them, try searching within this page using Control-F if you're running Linux or Windows, or Command-F if you're running macOS.)
  • The "Order" cell lists that person's order in the succession of the office in that state, territory, or district.
  • The "Place" column lists the place where that person was elected or appointed to office (whether for Canada as a whole, or for a colony, dominion, or territory which is now part of Canada, or a current province or territory).
  • If there is an asterisk (*) in the "1900" column, it means that person was alive in the year 1900. This is to mark profiles that are eligible for inclusion in La Belle Époque Project.

You can sort the list by any column (Branch Size, Name, Last Name At Birth, Country, Order, Place, or Working On) by clicking on the sort symbol in the header for that column.

Free space profiles (like this one) work pretty much the same way that profiles for people do, so all the same syntax applies. So to show that you are working on a branch, edit this page, scroll down to the listing you want work on, and replace the number at the end of the line with two opening square brackets ([), then your WikiTree ID, then a pipe (|), then your name, then two closing square brackets (]), like this: [[Example-123|Ferdinand Grubstake]].

Similarly, when you connect a branch (or discover one that's already connected), add Connected (or Found connected) and then the date. Put three single quotes (') before and after "connected" to put it into bold, like this: "'Connected'" 2022-05-01. One of the page pruners will then delete that entry in a couple of weeks, after everybody has had a chance to celebrate the new connection.

Okay, we are nearly done with Yukon politicians. There are only two commissioners still to connect, and only three deceased premiers. Once those are done, Yukon's territorial leaders will all be connected. (I'm curious to see whether the last Yukon leader gets connected before David Lam, who has been the lone holdout in B.C. for ages.)
posted by Greg Slade
So now, B.C., Yukon, Nunavut, Ontario, and New Brunswick all have no more deceased former premiers, commissioners, lieutenant governors or colonial governors to add, so once the ones currently on the list are all connected, those jurisdictions will be complete. I'll be interested to see which one gets completed first. (My guess is that B.C. will be last, because connecting David Lam would probably require access to Chinese records.)

As we get closer to getting all the premiers and lieutenant governors from all the provinces and territories connected to the main tree, I'm looking at other politicians to add to the list. I've already listed the first few (unconnected) federal ministers of health, but today I decided to check out mayors. I looked up mayors for Ottawa, the provincial and territorial capitals, and the 13 largest other cities in the country. So far, I've been able to find at least one unconnected mayor for all the cities in the list except for Gatineau, Halifax, Hamilton, Iqaluit, Laval, Markham, Mississauga, St. John's, Surrey, and Yellowknife. Some (not very many) of the mayors are on WikiTree, but the ones who are on WikiTree are already connected. So if you want to make sure that your city is covered, you might want to create a profile for a former mayor.

Okay, I finally finished adding the mayors I've found so far to the table. Now to work on finding (or creating) profiles for mayors of the remaining cities.
posted by Greg Slade
A found and added some more mayors. I'm trying to get the list up to at least two per city. Thank you very much to those who have created profiles. It's so much easier linking to an existing profile than creating a new one.
posted by Greg Slade
Some cities (like Toronto) have clearly had somebody go through and add profiles for former mayors and connect them with connnection boxes. Thank you so much to anybody who has done that for even one mayor. It makes maintaining this page SO much easier!

Other cities, I'm having real trouble with. So far, I haven't found a single mayor for Markham, Mississauga, St. John's, Saskatoon, or Yellowknife.

Still others (Iqauit, Saint John, Surrey, and Vaughan, for example) don't even have Wikipedia articles for most of their mayors. I've been able to find a very few mayors or reeves in those cases, but without Wikipedia to guide me, it's taking a LOT longer.
