I am a Canadian, living on the west coast. My maternal grandparents (Higgins, Mathis, Wire, Southwick) were from Iowa. I have been researching this side of my family for about a decade. My paternal ancestors are Icelandic; my grandmother arrived in Canada in 1902. Both of my parents grew up in Saskatchewan.

I am also a volunteer with the Aboriginal Genealogy Network; we share information and guidance for people searching for Canadian aboriginal, Metis and Inuit ancestors at facebook/aboriginal.ancestors

Recently, we have been cleaning headstones and taking photos for the pioneer interments at the Catholic OMI Cemetery in Mission, B.C. I am now volunteering with the British Columbia Genealogical Society to add information about the many religious who are buried there, as well as aboriginal people and pioneers.
