We have lived in the 4 Cornors House in Utterson for 3 years now and hope to find out some history. Specifically if it was ever in a Guiness Worldbook or Rippleys Believe it or Not.. If so does anyone have that publication I can purchase. I know James Appolony lived and work out of the house and ran an ice cream shop. Any memories or information would be appreciated

I am hoping to receive information regarding a 'James Wilson . Beleque' family. The family built a church somewhere in the Parry Sound area. Apparently the church is still standing and if anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.

I'm hoping to get in touch with any remaining family members (siblings, nieces/nephews) of Robert George Smith, b 15 June 1924 and d 23 November 1943. Robert was a guardsman with the Canadian Grenadier Guards, and died in an accident while serving overseas. From the page on the Canadian Virtual War Memorial (http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/memorials/canadian-virtual-war-memorial/detail/2928986?Robert%20George%20Smith), I know that Robert's parents were James Le Roy Smith (Roy) and Pearl Martha Pelina Smith. He had a brother named Bill, and three sisters named Alice, Ellen and Florence. Florence has a son named Bob.


I have information I believe may be of interest to the family, and would greatly appreciate any help that could be given in putting me in touch with them.

Thank you.

I am looking for a Florence "Carol" Smith-White , last known to be living in Orrville/Parry Sound, ON. Carol is a distant cousin of mine and I have lost touch with her. She was married to the late James Kenneth White (d. 2015) and has three sons (Rob, Ian and Vance) I believe that she may be on your Board in some capacity or be a member.. I would like to reconnect with he if possible as she appears to have moved from the last address that I have. Thank you for any help you may be able to provide!

Hello!

I am a descendant of Jacob William Dill, he is my four times great grandfather. I am trying to find out who his parents were and ideally find out when the family came to Canada and from where. If anyone could help me with where to find birth records, that would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Chelsea

I'm researching my grandmother's family, last name Duval from the Bracebridge area. Her name was Mary Selina Duval and her parents were Onesime "John" Duval and Mary Flavie Duval nee Rouille. They were from Quebec, and were Roman Catholic attending St. Joseph Church in Bracebridge.

I've found them on the 1881 census for Bracebridge, but their last name was entered incorrectly as "Gervan". I found them by going through the census page by page. They were listed as Onesime, Mary, Joseph, Napoleon, M.C.Gervan.

The 1891 census seems to have different districts than the 1881. Could you please help me find them on the 1891 census as well as anything about the family. Thank you for any help you might be able to provide me with.

I am researching the history of the Taplin family, starting with Albert Taplin, b. Draper in 1917, still living in Draper in the 1921 census. He joined the Canadian army that fought in Korea in the 1950's, married a Canadian girl called Helen Park in Vancouver, where they had three children.
I would appreciate any information of his family during his early years

Hi,

I found this entry on your website:

Family History - The Belanger Family
by Marion Belanger

The third child of Alexis and Catherine was Andre "David" who married Josephine Lamore in 1886, one of the French families from Three Rivers. They had sixteen children with the youngest few still living in Britt. David died in 1943 and now this generation of pioneers was almost gone

My wife is a descendant of one of the Lamore families from Byng Inlet. What I'm particularly interested in is the part about "Three Rivers" in Quebec. I've noticed mention of this on many Byng Inlet records. Do you know where it is in reference to? It does not seem to be the first logical conclusion which one would make which would be Trois-Rivières Quebec. Would you have any hints about where "Three Rivers" actually could be?

Regards,

Ed
