The biography for Lynda Joyce MacIntosh:

My father was born in Cape Breton, he joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1943-1946 and served in England and Europe, during WW2. He was bilited at the home of my grandparents in Worthing, Sussex, England, There he met my mother. After the war was over he came back to Canada to be discharged. After working for about a year to make enough money to return to England. He married my mother there in November of 1947, I was born in October of the following year. I was christened in St. Mary's Church in Broadwater, Sussex, England, just around the corner from where we lived. This church was an old Norman church and many of my English family were christened or married there. This church has a great history, unfortunately when I went back to England in 2014, it was closed to the public, I was very disappointed. We lived with my Nana and Grandad in Worthing, Sussex, I was born in the same bedroom as my mother was. I can remember driving along in a car with my Mum and Dad and I asked my Dad why he had to wind it up. You know, the cars with the crank in the front. I can also remember walking with my Grandad to the local pub and taking a bottle of Guinness back to my Nana. With good work hard to find, my parent's decided to leave family and friends behind and emigrate to Canada in 1952 aboard the " HMS Italia ". We went to live with my Dad's father Edward in Newfounland for a short time and then went to his brother Neil's in Glacé Bay Nova Scotia. We eventually wound up in St. Stephen, New Brunswick where some of my mother's family lived. ( see information about Chester Hazen Middlemiss.) The work situation was not very good, so my Dad rejoined the Canadian Army And we were immediately posted to Chilliwack, BC. I started school there and shortly after my brother was born and a year later my sister was born. In 1959 my Dad was posted to Werl, Westphalia, Germany. It really was a great experience. The only down side was upon arrival in Holland, I recall the bombed out buildings that still had not been rebuilt after WW 2. As a family we went to many War Cemeteries and in some places we were able to go into the trenches. We returned from Europe in 1961. We were then posted to Halifax and we lived in St. Margaret' s Bay. We were again posted to Chilliwack .B C. Where my Dad became an instructor. I met my first husband there. And in January of 1965 we were posted to Winnipeg, Manitoba where I was married in August 1965. Our first daughter was born in British Columbia in 1967 and then our second daughter was born in 1970. In 1979 I was divorced from their father and in 1981 I married Ken Pollitt and have been for 38 years. A divorce came about in 2020, Ken has one daughter and three grandchildren and I have eight grandchildren with four great grandchildren one of which calls me GiGi. I guess whatever works for a nine year old.

I have since learned that I am related to many Royal Families including The House of Tudor, The House of Windsor, The House of Hanover, the list is long and with the help of a Wonderful Wikitreer, he opened my eyes to a whole new world.

Hello

It’s time for a Project check-in!

Scotland Project Leaders check in with you at least once a year to see how you are doing. With the changes happening around the world, we understand that life is hectic right now.

What are you planning to work on for the Scotland Project this year? Are you happy with the team(s) you part of, or would you like to make some changes?

This time round, we’re also looking for feedback on the use of Google Group and Discord. Do you use one or both of these? If you don’t use either of them, what is the best way to ensure you receive Project communications? If you would like to join us on Google Group or Discord, let us know in your response.

Hi Sarah, I am so sorry for not getting back to you sooner, but I have been in the throes of moving. Anyway, I do want to continue with the transition. I am mainly interested in the MacIntosh Clan, however, as I have found out, there are many different Clans who married Into my Clan, these include MacLeod, MacDonald, MacIntyre, MacRae, Brown, MacCarthy, these are only the ones that come immediately to mind, there are many others.

Thank you for reaching out......Lynda

Hi

We haven’t heard back from you concerning the Scottish Clans Transition. If we haven’t received a response from you by 1 April 2020, you will be welcome to rejoin by answering the current g2g thread for joining the Scotland Project.

Best Regards,

Sarah Mason, Scotland PC

Hi Lynda,

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.

Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.

Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.

Many thanks,

Susie

Okay, how do I go about adding the individual country projects, I want to belong to England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales...thank you....Lynda
Hi Lynda

Thank you so much for responding to our check-in. We are delighted that you wish to continue contributing to the Canada project. Below is a quick checklist for active members. The project leaders would like you to make sure you have done the following:

1) Checked the Project Page for ways to contribute

2) Added CANADA to the tags you follow.

3) PM the project leaders with your email address to be added to the Google Group

4) Bookmarked the Activity Feed to monitor the project watchlist

Thank you

Hello Lynda

On behalf of the Canada Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members. Please let us know if you are still active in the Canada project. If you are active, please let us know in which ways you are currently contributing to the project.

All of us at WikiTree would like to thank you for your contributions and hope that you are enjoying exploring your roots.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hi Lynda. The correct Mayflower Project tag is mayflower not mayflower_descendants.

Hi Lynda,

I haven’t yet heard back from you to say whether or not you’d like to continue in the Canada Project. Please can you let me know if you’d like to stay, what team(s) you’d like to be in, and let me know your e-mail address so I can add you to the project Google Group? If I haven’t heard back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer want to be in the project and go ahead and remove you. You would, of course, be most welcome to re-join at any time.

Many thanks,

Susie

Hi Lynda,

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).

Susie

Hi Cousin, Lynda!

I just wanted to say hello. And to share with you that we are 24th cousins (twice removed). Our common ancestor is Fernando Alronsez (Castilla) de Castilla, a King of Spain, (Castilla-105), your 25th g-grandfather and my 23rd.

I don't know if you are aware that we also share 24 more ancestors after him up to 30 generations who are monarchs in England, Hungary, Germany, France, Spain, etc.

Beyond that, our older ancestral trail gets even more interesting to search. Your roots are in the Monarchy of many different countries! There are ancestors, of yours and mine, who you'd likely be astonished to discover!

Just wanted to share this information, and to say Hi. Isn't Wikitree Fun!
