Forty years ago on a trip to Europe I visited my grandpa's English hometown and met some relatives. My mother had me help her in labeling old photos. Since Google, I've intermittently researched, when in the mood.
Southern Ontario (Peterborough, Toronto etc.); England and Northern Ireland; and (supposedly) Pennsylvania Dutch.
I inherited many ancient photos/letters/diaries and would like to share them. A genealogy book (In Search of the Irish Darlings) was done about my Dad's father's family that raises as many questions as answers, so I'd also like to satisfy my curiosity, if possible.
Finding whether old family stories have any truth; better knowing a personage in a sepia snapshot; insight into relatives who impacted me in childhood.
I'm fairly new to Vancouver (was raised in Southern Ontario). I was a school psychologist/therapist.
