Though this portal was started as a way to share my own family research, it is growing to include non-related family lines! I believe historical context, as well as primary documents is important, as such, you may find some of the content helpful in your own search for your family story:
- Links to Research Sites
- Insight into the research process, etc…
I am excited to announce that I am the Keynote Speaker at the Great Canadian Genealogy Summit, October 21-23, 2016 in Brampton, ON
Having researched my own family history over many years, the following links provide family members with information I have found. Please feel free to copy documents.
Features: Documents | Family Trees | Links to Further Research | Photos of Travel to Ancestral Homes
If you have documents and information you can share, please do! If you don’t see a document you are looking for here, it does not mean I don’t have it. It will take time to get the documents online. Please make sure contact me for information or documents you are looking for, if I have it, I will share it. For privacy purposes, unless you ask to have your name and any documentation added, only those two generations or more back will be posted on this site.

Family Tree DNA
Recently I had genealogical DNA testing done. The results were fascinating, giving new insights into my own personal heritage. Though there are a number of labs now performing these tests, it was suggested by a professional genealogist that I use Family Tree DNA.
