Special Note: this morning received word that Judith Crettenden passed away on Friday, August 30, at 7:10 pm. in Australia from her husband Ron. She has been sick for a number of years fighting breast cancer.
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 lives in MacGregor. MB, Canada}"
Note: Just found some old pictures of Winnipeg - were I now live. Will post here.
Letter: recvd from Australia Hi Lauraine, Yes, as for a few diseases in childhood had wiped out some crowds bloodlines also! My Pa mentioned getting sick and Dr came and told parents he wouldn’t make the night, some of his siblings had already passed and thought he was a gonner! – he lived to 93. Also my Nan had TB when she was a teenager (born 1920’s). My Mum was always a bit sus about the smallpox vaccine, which was eradicated by the time I was born in the 70’s. The TB injection leaves a similar scar but I’d rather have that than the disease for sure! All of my kids are vaccinated against everything available with only one having a severe reaction to triple antigen (Whooping cough portion). I do hope something can be found with modern day detections on DNA patterns to treat all things a lot more effectively programmed/ tailored to fit each body. One of Pa’s nephew’s (Noel Ede) went to Uni in Adelaide, was a professor who discovered the link between pregnancy and Rubella/measles vaccination. It’s beyond me how it all works but fantastic that we can mostly live longer healthier lives. .....maybe someone will invent a fire without the smoke damage (haaahaaha). Regards, Karen MacDonald
PEI was July 1, 1873

Note: 1791-1841 it was called Upper Canada
1841-1867 it was called Canada West.
It has been Province of Ontario, Canada since Confederation on July 1, 1867.
I have never heard it called British Colonial anything, but the non-US British colonies, that now make up Canada were regularly referred to as British North America. answered Dec 23, 2016 by Dave Rutherford G2G6 Mach 5 (57.1k points) selected Dec 23, 2016 by Dale Byers
