Margaret - it depends on what kinds of records you wish to access. Are you
starting by just utilizing census and immigration records to confirm
presence? If so, probably ancestry.ca would be your best bet - or even
ancestry.com. If your local library or museum has a subscription, check out
their contents. If you require Quebec/French records, ancestry.ca also has
the Drouin collection - the possibilities are pretty endless right now - so
if you narrow it down somewhat, I will be glad to amend the list.
In short - if you're just starting to look for them on this side of the
pond, start with ancestry and search out census records etc.
