I have recently found my Grandmother listed on the 1901 Ontario Census in the township of Wroxeter in Huron County. She was born on August 5, 1899. Her parents were George J Harris and Agnes J Harris born Jan 3, 1875 and Sept 21, 1877 respectively. I was hoping to find where George and Agnes were born, and when their families emigrated and from where? We know very little about the Harris side of the family so I was very excited to see this much!

You should also check the online Ontario Vital Registrations for the births of George and Agnes and their marriage. In fact a very quick visit to FamilySearch and their marriage registration of 1898 pops up.
George is recorded as born 1875 in Wroxeter to George Harris and Elizabeth Stewart. Agnes is recorded as born in California in to John Burns & Margaret Oliver. George's birth record is also found on FamilySearch
Look for Agnes in the 1880 Census for California - she is found with her parents and siblings in Vallejo, Solano, California
Armed with these new findings you should be able to trace the families further back in time.
