I am so very sorry to have to tell everyone that Rae Ball 2533 has passed on 11 Jan 2022. He was 90 years old. Rae was my Uncle John Ball's son. He taught me all about Genealogy and he got me on Wikitree also. he was a wonderful teacher. See his Obituary on Pelham Funeral Home Obituaries, Ontario Canada. I am not sure how to put it on his profile. From Donna (Simpson) Irwin 1825

Donna, just saw your comment. So sorry to hear that Rae has passed, he was a very active contributor to the Crawford branches here on Wikitree for years. Please know that his work on those branches is being carried on by the Crawford Name Study.

Rae, on a bunch of the Crawford profiles managed or created by you, it references the following: "William D. Crawford, 1989; Carefully Researched, Looks like he carefully researched all sources."

or sometimes "Heritage of William M. Crawford" , but I can't find anything online or in library contents that looks like either. Can you give me a little more information about how to find that publication please? Examples: David Crawford II (1662-abt.1762) and James Crawford (1701-1749) Appreciate it!

Hi Rae,

You have a Sarah Brainbridge married to a Matthew Crawforth. Sorry, according to a FindmyPast record, she married a Robert Goundrill in 1846. (Matthew was a witness). She was baptised as Sarah Brambridge on 29 Jan 1826, in Keyingham, Yorkshire, parents Thomas and Elizabeth

Sorry I'm a little late getting back to you, lazy day today


I have data for most of the descendants of Allan Stuart Burnham, who is my brother-in-law's grandfather on his mothers side.

Cheers and Happy New Year.
