|I am researching my ancestors that originated in the Isle of Man and the southern part of England.I have visited the Isle of Man and met many relatives on the KELLY side of the family.Ihave never met any of the GULLIVER relatives from England as they do not seem too interested in their Canadian relativess.|
Both my grandfathers immigrated to Canada and became some of the early settlers in the Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan before they were Provinces belonging to the nation of Canada.They had to file claims for their land before they were able to farm same.They struggled through some very trying times and suffered from bad crop years, hailstorms, wind, lack of rain, etc.We are grateful for their hard work.Today's society does
not appreciate what our forefathers had to go through to make our world what it is today.
