The purpose of the Canadian Interest Group is to promote an interest in family history and research.
The original society was founded in 1969 by a handful of members researching French Canadians. From materials and book donations shared out of member’s trunks to becoming a formalized society which gathered one of the largest research collections in the upper Midwest, the Canadian Interest Group is now part of the Minnesota Genealogical Society, who owns the Canadian Collection, housed at the William J Hoffman Library and Research Center in South St. Paul, Minnesota.
The areas of interest includes all individuals whose ancestry came through Canada including
- French Canadian
- Native American
