To mark Canada Day, MyHeritage has opened up its Canadian historical records – all 135m of them – with free access until Tuesday 2 July.

This is a great opportunity for any genealogist whose Irish ancestors emigrated to Canada to explore their lives through all the country's censuses; identify births, marriages and deaths in a number of regional record-sets; find out if they served in the military; check out directories, obituaries, newspaper reports, local histories and more.

You'll need to have a registered account. If you don't already have one, this is quick and easy to set up and doesn't require you to provide financial details.
