I was appointed family historian by my grandmother and some of her sisters in 1962. I agreed to write, not memorize, and proceeded to do so. The beginning seemed straightforward. I'd write out what I was told and move on to things of greater interest to me. I must admit to being hooked. Totally. Thanks, Nannie! Now I am retired and happy to have more time to devote to genealogy.

I have more information on many individuals on my tree than you may see here. Contact me with questions about them.

Maternal relationship is confirmed by a 3,578.7 cM match between Margaret Thomson GEDmatch A422756 and her daughter Judith Johnstone GEDmatch T559569.

I have a special interest in the northern part of the province but have researched in all regions.
British Columbia pioneers are not far back in time, and B.C. attracted some very colourful characters. When I want new and breaking ground stories, I find them right here.
John Minton Chidlow came to Canada in 1864 and settled in Kincardine, Ontario. His parents, George Chidlow and Mary Webber were married in Great Ness, Shropshire, England in 1840. Interested in all connections.
Researching all connections of Friederich Carl Adalbert Frohberger of Erfurt, Thuringen, Germany
Ancestors of Catherine Mathers (c1852-1904) who lived in Dublin, Ireland though one census shows her as born in Scotland. I'm gradually getting more.
Family of Joseph Pozzi, goldsmith, silversmith and Jeweller of Elgin, Scotland who lived from about 1791 to 1871. I'd like to learn of his Italian family.

Hi Judith...I tryed to compare my gedmatch number with yours and has came up as error kit?
Thank You, Thank you, thank you Judith !! Your adding that Harrison and "Johnson" marriage info.. solved another brick wall !
I did that because she spoke Sioux, and from what is noted in her biography, she had more than passing play relationship with the Sioux. Take it off if you don't like it. Dog comment not very nice.

A pioneer girl who played with Sioux should not be labelled Sioux any more than playing with anything else earns a child that label. Most of us could be called dogs on that basis!

Hi. Re Cowan profiles, you do not need to transfer them to me. THanks for the thought.

Hi Judith,

Just a reminder to sign up here for the Scan-a-Thon: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/720133/have-you-registered-for-the-scan-a-thon-yet You need a badge to participate. I sent you an email earlier today, but just in case it ended up in your junk file :)

Thanks, Laurie

Hahaha. I get very focused when I'm on a mission.
I can definitely get your Canadian Colvilles connected. I’m working on the grandparents now
Hi Judith,

I’ve not heard back from you so presume you don’t want to continue in the Canada Project at this time so have gone ahead and removed your badge. If that changes anytime you would be most welcome to re-join in the future.

Susie :-)
