Predominant names being researched are WATTS, AMY, RUTHERFORD, CONQUERGOOD, DODDS, MULLETT, WILSON, GATES, PATON, LOWE.
Most of the family names are represented in great detail. Some are sorely lacking in information.
I can be found lurking on some website or family history center in search of an elusive family member. It has been, and still is, sometimes frustrating and sometimes very rewarding to be involved in the quest of finding long-lost family members.
I have met and chatted with family members whom I didn't even know existed. I have visited the four corners of the world via the internet and have learned things about world history that I was never interested in when I attended school. I have communicated with some kind and generous strangers who were more than willing to do research on my behalf. My sincere thanks and gratitude go out to those anonymous helpers. I have discovered family members across the sea and around the corner. What a wonderful pastime.
The information on this site was gathered over a long span of years by dedicated family members who gave their time and effort to fact-finding and putting these facts together in some sort of order that made sense. Many family members were interviewed (some now deceased) and memories were probed and jostled to gain what you read here. It takes a long time to put together the data that is collected and a firm belief that some day you will see all your hard work come together. I would like to thank everyone who volunteered information and suggestions. I do hope that all who visit come away with a sense of who we are or who they are.
I have tried to include some links that I hope you will find helpful. While these links do not even begin to be exhaustive, they are a good place to start.
A good place to begin your search, after GENEALOGY 101, is CYNDI'S LIST. This site is laden with thousands of links to some excellent genealogy resources and is the most comprehensive site you will probably find on the internet for genealogy.
I have included some Canadian websites that contain exclusively Canadian content. I have also included my other two personal family websites that I have published to Rootsweb and to Geocities. As I discover more sites I will add them to this page. If you know of an excellent site, please feel free to contact me via e-mail and let me know so I can add it here.
Please remember that any data collection project has its potential for misinformation. I have tried to confirm and double check my data and sources but there is always a margin for error. Bear that in mind and if you find anything here that you might use in your own research, please take the time to confirm the data for your own records. The following information is not exhaustive and is in a constant state of change as I am always finding new leads and threads to follow.
Thank you for visiting and please come back often to check for any updates. Good luck in your own personal search for that elusive family member.
Take care. Karen
