Retiring in 2008 I delved into our family history on Ancestry.com, begun in 2001. This led me to Find A Grave - and even more relatives.
I'm a first-generation American who spent much of my first 10 years in Canada. Mum was 100% Irish, a first-generation Canadian born in Montreal, with her parents arriving from the same street, Marlborough Terrace, in Derry City during 1887 and 1905.
Dad was a second generation Canadian born in Scarboro Junction, then outside Toronto. He was 50% Irish, 25% Scottish and 25% English. His maternal line arrived from Co Longford, Ireland (1824), and England (c1830). His paternal line is from Lislea, Co Derry (1847), and Dumfries-shire, Scotland (1844).
I am only managing records that have some connection to our family but if you wish to take over a memorial of your family member, please do not hesitate to contact me through the message board.
