Hannah Grant is the second of two children born to David Grant & Wanda Jones. The Grant family moved from her birthplace in Kansas up to Michigan as David followed his career as a civil employee for the United States Army. Hannah was named so after her 3rd great grandmother Hannah Dempsey (nee Butler) from her father's maternal side. The middle name Maureen was given in lieu of the famous Maureen O'Hara, a popular actress of the parents decade. The family all still resides locally in Michigan, a halfway point between the parents origins of Midwestern United States and Canada.


Ms. Grant holds four undergraduate diplomas in the social sciences including cultural anthropology and behavioral science. In 2015, she completed a Masters degree in Educational Technologies. Today she volunteers as a web services librarian for a digital archive project.


A large majority of her genealogy work pertains to native ancestry in the woodland and maritime regions of Canada and neighboring US states.

Hi Hannah,

Welcome to the Ontario Team! Would you be interested in setting up an Ontario free-space page for the Category: Métis Province of Ontario? You can see similar free-space pages on the Ontario Team's main page. If you think it might be useful, please let me know and we can discuss it.

Thanks, Laurie, Project Coordinator

Hi Hannah,

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).

See Catin-25. I had to change her parents. Her father is the brother of Michael. I wrote a bio with sources. I included 2 conflicting versions of the marriage with different secondary sources. I'll try to get one more source.

Hi, Hannah. I have a Coultas lady who married at Brompton by Sawdon who I cannot identify. I see you have Coultas-52-Robert Coultas at Brompton and presume that is Brompton by Sawdon, also associated with Hutton Buscel. (note spelling). May I add those categories to the profile? This will group them together and hopefully will help identify them at a later date. I suspect they were related.
