This blog will reflect the progress of my genealogy project(s). I will describe any major changes that I make on my website www.fayewest.ca and I will document how I solved some brick walls.

Photo Albums

I added a new section called Photo Albums to the Broder portion of the site.  Alice's Album is the first entry.  It's an album of snapshots created by Percy Broder and sent to Robert & Violet Broder as a Christmas gift in 1948.  The photos are mostly of Alice (Graves) Broder.

Manery obituaries

I found obituaries for Ron (Hubert Ronald) Manery and his son David Shewell Manery

Percy Broder

Working with Barbara Hill, we're finding lots of info about Percy. The big find is the record of his marriage to Hannah (Reichard) Baierle. Some of the new information went online tonight.  There's more to come.

Broder / Cuffe updates

I received a huge amount of information from Betty (Cuffe) Smith in Australia.  I've added 122 people to the Broder site and updated about 100 others.   I also added some census records and photos of several Co Sligo churches that I found when checking various events.

Lots of new stuff

Over the past week or so I merged the descendants of William & Catherine (Jones) Coleman into the My Loyalist Family section.  This data was originally received from Robert Coleman and included in the Coleman/Jones line.  The merge included finding, and attaching as exhibits, many of the source records that Bob had referenced in his data.

The result is that 234 people and almost 40 exhibits have been added.
