How many generations has your family been here and what part of the world did they come from, should be an interesting form. My family has been in Canada for about 5 generations, coming from England though we have a german name.

NOTE all you sepratists out there, you live in CANADA so if you wish to join in and tell us when your family came here, please do, just don't start your traitorous bull here, there are enough topics going on about your plight already.

Second generation Canadian (born in North York, ON).

On my father's side (Calgary, AB), my grandparents immigrated to Canada in the early 1900's as children... my paternal grandmother (from England) missed the Titanic by a few weeks (she came on the next ship...). My paternal grandfather was from Scotland.

On my mother's side, I know she was born here (Etobicoke, ON), but I don't know if her parents were... possibly (British and Dutch heritage on this side of the family).

All my family comes from England, and with the common surname "Morris" my family tree goes back generations.

“1535”?!?!? Holy Crap – that’s only 38 years after Cabot reached Newfoundland! Wow! Not only that, but by 1535, Cartier’s 2nd voyage was approaching Hochelaga! Do you have any other information – this is actually quite remarkable. Cool. 8)

Err got a question Arctic menace, the topic is how long your family was in Canada, how is 1535 possible when nobody has colonized Canada until 1608 by Cartier?

I think you mean Samuel de Champlain (along with De Monts) in 1608. Cartier was dead long before the 1600s.
