About Our Family Research
The Lamb Family has been traced to Nova Scotia. The family lived in the Parrsboro area. It was called Mill Village originally. It is suspected that the family came from the US in the 1760's as part of the Planters Migration. The research is bogged down here as exact confirmation is not available at the 1st of January, 2003.
My grandfather Charles Freeman Lamb came to Manitoba in the early to mid 1880's. He married a Jane Ann Millham who was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He married her in Headingly, MB in 1890. Jane's family lived in The Shell River area of Manitoba which is north and east of Russell, MB. The information is verified by Census records of the 1871, 1881 and 1901 Censuses.
The had several children. My father was Albert Lamb. He lived in Minnedosa area until the late 1920's when he moved to Gary Indiana Area and lived with his brother Colby. He returned to Minnedosa, Manitoba and married Inez Leonard. They lived in Minnedosa until about 1946-7. They moved to Virden, MB and lived there until the early 50's.
