Ottawa, July 22, 2009 - Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the release of a new version of theCanadian Naturalization 1915-1932 online database.

It now includes the names of 206,731 individuals who applied for and received status as naturalized Canadians from 1915 to 1932. This database is one of the few Canadian genealogical resources specifically designed to benefit those researchers with roots outside of the British Commonwealth. References located in the database can be used to request copies of the actual naturalization records, which are held by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Already found my great-uncle, Archie Johnston, who was born in Arenac Co., MI (lists USA on the naturalization record) and was living in Greencourt, Alberta, Canada, when naturalized in 1928. Archie fought in the Canadian Army in WWI; his only son Edward (also on the naturalization list)died in WWII. Thanks for the tip. Couldn't get the link to work, but found the database through Google.
