I grew up in the Canadian Maritime provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island), and three of my four grandparents have their roots there as well, with English (and some Scottish) ancestors. My paternal grandfather came to Canada from Bermuda, also with English ancestors. My roots are so English, I even have an ancestor named English.

Here are some of the names I'm researching: Allen [New Brunswick], Andrews [Devon], Beckwith [New Brunswick], Cooper [Bermuda], Crawford [New Brunswick], Easton [Scotland, New Brunswick], English [New Brunswick], Fillmore [New Brunswick], Finney [New Brunswick], Hicks [New Brunswick], Ingham [Bermuda], Johnson [New Brunswick], Kirkland [New Brunswick], Lockhart [New Brunswick], Masters [Bermuda], McGary, Moore [Bermuda], Morris [New Brunswick], Newbold [Bermuda], Prowse [Prince Edward Island, Devon], Richardson [New Brunswick], Rider [Devon], Scott [New Brunswick], Sharpe [New Brunswick], Taylor [New Brunswick], Weeks, Wheaton [New Brunswick], White [Bermuda], Whitter [Bermuda], Willis [Prince Edward Island], Young [Bermuda]

Hi, Leanne — This question goes back to May 2016. How was the difference of opinion as to the parents of Susannah (Coates) Dixon (COATES-432) resolved? I’m guessing one set of parents was Richard and Mary Coat(e)s and the other set was John and Catharine Elizabeth (Thornhill) Coates as shown now. Background: Susannah Coates who married Charles Dixon, and Isabella Coates (COATES-283) who married John Trenholm, seemed to be related to each other, leading to speculation they were sisters. Therefore when some Yorkshire records seemed to show Isabella was the daughter of Richard and Mary Coat(e)s, it was assumed that yhey were probably also Susannah’s parents. However additional Yorkshire records were found which suggested Susannah’s parents may have been John and Catharine Elizabeth (Thornhill) Coates. I would certainly love to learn how it was decided to go with John and Catharine Elizabeth. Although they seemed to have the best argument, I did not personally find it convincing enough to be considered decisive of the issue.

Hi Leanne,

Greg Lavoie, Dave Rutherford and I have put a lot of work into restructuring the Canada Project. Have a look at the new project page.

You'll see that we've changed the project name to the Canada Project and the badge will be changed shortly. We've done this in order to provide lots of ways for people to contribute to Canadian Profiles. We've also moved towards a team approach with top level teams being lead by Project Coordinators and sub-teams being lead by Team Leaders.

Would you like to continue in the Canada Project, and if so, which team(s) would you like to be on?

Let me know if you have any questions. Once I hear back from you I'll add you to the Google group and get you set up in your team(s).
