Family Tree Responses

One of our family tree supporters reported...........

Here is the most recent version of our tree.  I've had four contacts through your site from people saying this was the only place they had seen their family mentioned - so that was nice.

Thanks,
F.

Wonderful to see someone finding new contacts through our pages.

Family Tree Success

I just received this email from Sandra -

My family tree on canadianheadstones.com has helped me out again. The St. Catharines Rowing Club did research on the history of the club to find the descendants of previous presidents. They found my greatgrandfather's name in my tree and were able to contact me through my email address. Because of that tree our family has been invited to the christening of a new boat next year. I have had more contacts since I put my tree on CH than I have had through years of posting trees on other websites.

It is GREAT to learn of Sandra's success. We wish her continued Good Luck,

Jim

Thank You Note

Another of our wonderful volunteers, Amy, just received this note....

Hello:
I just wanted to THANK YOU very much for the headstones image of my great uncle James Henry McCalpin and his daughter Mildred A Parker McCalpin in the Killarney Cemetery.

I had NO idea they were available and I just happened to see canadianheadstones.com at the Ancestry.ca website this morning and thought I'd just try a few names - I got a really wonderful surprise thanks to your work doing this - it helps "complete" the story and the family tree that much better. Now I gotta see if I can find his wife!................


THANKS AGAIN - very much appreciated!

R. B.


A nice note for a dedicated volunteer in our project.
