Multicultural Canada Digitization Project




"The
Multicultural Canada digitization project grew from a conviction that the cultural groups that make up Canada have little-known stories that need to be researched and told. Through newspapers, interviews, photographs, print and material culture people tell us who they are. Yet research into Canada’s multi-ethnic communities has been hampered by the relative lack of availability of non-English language materials and other artefacts originating from minority groups. . . . . "

I found the following four articles on Greek's in Canada that you can view online.

"Elusive Community: Greek Settlement in Toronto, 1900-1940"

"The Experience of One Teacher in Greek Communal Schools"

"Greek Immigrant Women from Asia Minor in Prewar Toronto: The Formative Years"

"The Greek Ladies' Philoptoko Society: Its Early Years in Toronto"

To view articles follow this link to the Multicultural Canada Home Page and insert a few key words from the article title into the "Search box".

-----------------

They also have an "Encyclopedia of Canada's People". There is a section on Greeks - Origins, Migration, Arrival and Settlement, Economic Life, Community Life, Family and Kinship Patterns, Culture, Education, Religion, Politics, Intergroup Relations, Group Maintenance and Ethnic Communities, Further Reading.

------------------

Hope some you will find this helpful in your Greek family genealogy research.
