Genealogy of a Country_ Is it Possible?

I wonder… If the Canada 150 Project reaches it’s goal of 150,000 Canadian family histories by July 1, 2017, what is the chance of everyone in the country not being included, in some way. Considering the population of early French-Canada with it’s limited gene pool, the UE Loyalists numbering under 30,000, and the immigration from the UK in the ninteenth century, 150, 000 genealogies may cover the whole population of Canada! It is quite an undertaking, but it may be possible.

With all of these family histories, and all of the combined family stories, available at the Library and Archives Canada, the genealogy of our country will be recorded, for everyone who’s interested and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to break through those brick walls.
