Yesterday was the 148th birthday of Canada. Most city celebrations were yesterday, but some were postponed to today because of bad weather. Some lucky people have the rest of the week off, making their celebrations last over the weekend.
Originally named Dominion Day, the name was changed to Canada Day in 1982.
Here are some interesting books that genealogists with Canadian ancestors may find useful in their research.
