Ruth, Just wanted to say how impressed I am by the work you've done on your ancestors in Kincardine. In trying to straighten out the Ontario categories, and in preventing terminal boredom setting in while I'm doing it, I'm "peopling" the township categories and connecting early settler families on WikiTree. You've pretty much done that in Kincardine! Thanks, Laurie

Hi, Ruth,

A mere thank you on Anna McGee's profile isn't nearly enough. I was reviewing the profile as I research the McGee family in the southern United States.

But it was your 1881 Census source that really caught my eye. Using that clue, I have finally found and seen the image for who we thought might be my husband's 2xgreat-grandfather. Happy Dances ensued when the occupation column revealed "Jeweler"!!!

Thank you so much for including sources! They make the difference in unexpected ways sometimes.
