We had a great get together this afternoon, Sunday Sept. 17. The space was perfect (Thanks Fairfield Inn Kanata!), the cake was superb (Thanks Costco Kanata!) and, as always, the company was so enjoyable! (Thanks everyone who chose to join us, inside, on such a beautiful day outside!)
What did we learn?
Well, John K and Sharon C were our resident O’Connor and Doyle experts and helped coach a cousin just starting her Doyle tree. We had two D’Aoust/Dow friends, Beth and Helen, stop by to share some info .. and contacts! .. for the Quyon-Onslow area. Cadieux ancestors from there were great friends with the D’Aoust families.
Of course for Shaun, the highlight was Carol O sharing her discovery of a death certificate for ancestor John “Jake” McEwan .. and the story behind his disappearance from our family history!
Sue S brought her flatbed scanner so we could scan photos for those attending. Nicole S helped us create a new Facebook group page that will facilitate sharing information in between reunions.
A busy afternoon! Thanks to all who have helped out to pull together the many threads to make this happen. We are already working on our September 2018 event!
