Could you please help me, I have just start my genealogy research and I want to list the place of birt, marriage, and death properly. What is the proper format to list the event? I am using > "city, province, country". Like > "Alliston, Ontario, Canada. Should I use the Township, County, and subdivision to make it easier for researchers to read eg > "Alliston, Tecumseth Township, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada? Is the Canada necessary?

My grandfather immigrated to the US shortly before 1900. What was required to leave Canada at this time? How can I find out exactly when he did come to the US? I have found him in a city directory for the year 1900 but have not been able to find out if he ever became a citizen.
From Jo Ann - You didn't need anything to leave except for the means to do so. I have a number of ancestors who left Ontario and Quebec (mostly for economic reasons) 1870 through about 1910 and came earliest via horse and wagon. Later, they came by train. My mother said that her grandparents came in a group and people would put their possessions in open boxcars. These were the French-Canadians. Nearly all of my ancestors were farmers or farming connected. Later it depended upon where you left from. Easiest from Sask. Ont. and harder without ID papers from Que. through NY, Vt or Maine. Need to check US Archives and need to know where they came into States.
My grandfather attended Univ. of Toronto.(before 1900) How can I find out when he attended and if he got a degree?

In order to do research I need to understand how Canada "breaks down" The United States has states; each state has counties; counties have cities; cities have townships. How does it work in Canada? Like Keppel, Grey, Wiarton, Ontario, Canada.

male ancestor died 1821 in Hamilton Twp. He left all his property to his widow and money to his daughters. If women were not allowed to own land in those days and he had no male heirs, what would have happened to the property?

In 1918 Why did a person have to carrie a CANADA Registration Board card? What are the numbers for in the top right hand corner for?
The number on the top right would likely be this person's registration number.
