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

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

Notes: On marriages in Scotland from Anne, leader of group in Scotland: "This is not two couple with the same names marrying 8 days apart. It's the same couple having their banns called in two different parishes.
The church was interested in recording the fact that the intention to marry had been proclaimed and no objections had been offered. It wasn't necessarily interested in recording the actual marriage ceremony. If the bride and groom lived in different parishes the banns had to be proclaimed in both, so this generates two records of the same event. The dates may be the dates when the Session Clerk noted that the banns had been called, The spelling difference is not significant - the clerk wrote it down however he thought it should be written down, and even if the couple could read and write they probably never saw the entry in the parish register, and if they did the idea that there was a 'correct' spelling wouldn't have occurred to them.
The original documents on SP will tell you whch parish the groom lived in, and which parish the bride lived in. They will probably also tell you which parish they were married in (usually the bride's) and you may even be lucky enough to get the actual date of the marriage ceremony. Anne"
