A number of Gates brothers and sisters arrived in the area in the 1880's from Essex, England and have left quite a number of descendants. Is it just possible that someone here could provide an address, email or post, for someone in the family interested in genealogy?
During my last trip to Winnipeg in 1995, I visited the site of the Boyne School memorial and the nearby Churchyard cemetary where a number of my Great Uncles are buried. It has taken this long to kindle an interest in family history. Living in Toronto makes my search rather difficult.
