Gayle, I am putting together data on the Hamelin family of Penetanguishene in an attempt to find the common ancestor (if there is one) to the Hamelins who settled in Sandwich. Perhaps we could share information. If you have the ancestors of the first Hamelins in the Penetang area, I could supply some dates missing from your previous posts to this list. Anyone else on this list is welcome to request the information also. Look forward to hearing from you.
