Maple Stars and Stripes fleur-de-lis logoIs it possible to go to bed a Canadian and wake up an American? Sure is! It happened to our ancestors thanks to the Webster-Ashburton Treaty.

If you’re lucky, you can find information on three or more generations of the family, immigration dates, and farm descriptions.
