Amish Mennonites of Canada
Genealogical Introductions by Bruce W. Jantzi
These Genealogical Introductions of 128 family names of all the known Amish Mennonite immigrants who settled or passed through Upper Canada (Ontario) in the 1800’s are built upon the research of Lorraine Roth (deceased 2013) of Tavistock, Ontario. Before her death, Lorraine had given Bruce Jantzi a copy of her digital files and permission to update and publish her work as new information is found.
