I have had my best luck with Google, and ancestry.ca. Sometimes you can find a Canada Census online but I don´t believe they went back further than 1905. I have been able to track where my grandparents (and 4 kids) landed, the name of the boat and how much money they brought with them. $16. That was in 1903

Rose, if you are in Canada, try the public library, usually the main branch or your local MP.

MP has access to researchers at the Library of Parliament to do these research for them. And there are many public libraries in Canada that comply datas, I remembered approaching the libraries when I was doing a research on my ancestry, and I find the librarian really helpful. Of course, not all librarians are that helpful, same for MPs.

Wow eerie...my partner´s family is Bucalo her Dad´s name is Frank but she has a brother named John and a sister named Rose. She´s been told her family immigrated from Sicily from the "Town" of Bucalo in the mid 1800´s. I want to say her father who recently passed was the first of the Bucalo´s to live in the US. Wonder if her family is connected to who you are looking for?
