I'm trying to connect Thomas Wilson Paterson, former Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, to the main tree. I've managed to push his branch out quite a ways in several directions but then my leads keep petering out before I can actually find a connection.
In any case, I got into a family of Savages, which perked up my ears, because there are Savages in my own family. However, I couldn't find a connection there, either.
What I did find was one of those sites built on The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding, which is a content management system for genealogy sites that I have encountered a few times before. This site traces out the families of a married couple, so it started out with their parents' names and kind of took off from there. So if anybody is working with Savage, Dowling, Gibbs, or Faulkner families, you may find your people on this site. If so, let me know, and we can try to connect together.
