Thank You Note

The Glanbrook Heritage Society received this one -

I have been in contact with you before regarding my Thompson relatives.  I would like to point out that Harriet ALLY THOMPSON should read Harriet ELLEY THOMPSON.  Harriet was the daughter of Thomas and Maria ELLEY of Binbrook.
Since I visited your office in a snowstorm in March 2006 I have found more information on my family, but will be back for a visit some time to find even more.  I have photographed Harriet and Thomas' headstone, but never saw the one for Earnest so that was a gread [sic] find on Canadian Headstones dot com.  Thankyou

These notes which I post are just a few of the many, many positive comments we get.

Thank You Notes & Compliments

Compliments and Thank You's continue to come in. One especially nice one was received by Eric in British Columbia for his efforts relating to a query -

Hello Eric,
Thank you so much for sending me the website addresses and the wonderful amount of information you kindly found on the names I mentioned – it is very much appreciated, and it all slots into place... cheers.
Your Canadian Headstone Photo Project is a very helpful, useful and phenomenal database - and is a unique record for posterity. It is obvious to me that a great deal of love, time and effort has gone into it, especially as you don’t have any family in that area.
Eric, I must also thank you for going out of your way to search the amazing familysearch website, a site which I am now looking into in more detail... brilliant!
Kindest regards and good look with your future research,
All of our volunteers are to be congratulated on their very hard work and continued support.
