Ordered my DNA kit from Family Tree - full MT test on 27 Dec 2016 - need to take this test - n0 idea why I have been putting it off.
Note the following: http://www.surnamedb.com/Surname/Smith
Picked up a key chain which states the following: “From the Old English ‘amid’ meaning blacksmith or metal worker. Smith is Britain’s most popular name Eariest record found - Aelfword pe Smith, Somerset, 1100."

At our wedding Bill Roberts, our next door neighbour, gave the speech to the bride. He was in WW2 as a bomber and not sure where he took his training, but found the following in Barbara Dougal Merriman's column: which gives the places in Canada of training schools during WW2: Malton, Ontario (No. 1 EFTS) London, Ontario (No. 3 EFTS) Boundary Bay/Sea Island, Vancouver (No. 8 EFTS) Stevenson Field, Winnipeg (No. 14 EFTS) Portage la Prairie, Manitoba (No. 14 EFTS) Edmonton, Alberta (No. 16 EFTS) Caron, Saskatchewan (No. 18 EFTS) Chatham, New Brunswick (No. 21 EFTS) L'Ancienne-Lorette, Quebec (No. 22 EFTS) Pearce, Alberta (No. 36 EFTS) Windsor Mills, Quebec (No. 4 EFTS) Prince Albert, Saskatchewan (No. 6 EFTS)
Some of the information in my profiles came from these books:
TRAILS, OLD and NEW -The book is a small 119 page paper back re MacGregor and District 1872-1967 dedicated in the memory of the pioneers of MacGregor and District. it was edited by Rupert Leslie Taylor. Cover picture(crocuses) from painting by Thelma Bennett. Printed by the Public Press Ltd. The cover |i expect is MacGregor Tartan but that’s only an observation. It does not have a date of publication that I can readily see. Hope this helps with your search. (received from Janice Lamb (nee Fotheringham) who still loves in MacGregor. MB, Canada

I descend from Stephen Sibley, Wittenberg (St Andrews) and have extensive information on all the families descending from him but have almost no information on his ancestry or his wife. I show him as a son of Henry but can find no proof of this. I have seen an online posting that suggests that Stephen might actually be the son of Henry's 4th son Ezekial. This wouldn't work mathematically for me as I have Stephen's 4 children being born between 1788 and 1796. Can you or anyone else help?

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.

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.

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).

I have no access nor any knowledge as to how to find documents in England. I have asked around and everyone suggested Family Search, but I have never done it myself so can not be of much help I only have experience of South African sources. So sorry, but do try Family Search, and lets be hopeful :-D
Have a nice day Ronel ps: It might be a good thing to ask in G2G, there are people with far greater experience ready to help.

I understand you want to merge the two below free space pages into one. I tried to do it for you but since I am not a manager of the two pages cannot do it.
I suggest you send the two profile pages URL web address along with a message requesting a WikiTree Leader to merge them for you if you're not able to merge the pages. Send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org
