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

More good stuff from Maureen

Maureen Kirincic sent me some photos today: portraits of Alex and Mildred (Murphy) Grier and their wedding photo.  Her notes also pointed me to a short bio of Lawrence Regan.  My final find today was John Patrick Murphy's death registration.

I've added some children for Gertrude Doyle and Andrew McGeein.  I'm still missing the names of two of their children.  I'm told that there is only one male left in the McGeein line.


I forgot to update here on June 10 when I added a little more information for Patrick Jordan and Jane Hamilton and their children Margaret Anne, Andrew, and Esther and her husband Michael Murray.

Steve Clark's family

After my most recent update, I got a note from my third cousin Steve Clark whose name I had misspelled (by adding an "e" to the end). He provided some further information on his children. Steve is the great-grandson of James Lewis Hamilton, my great-grandmother's (Mary Ann Hamilton) brother.

Big Update

Over the past week I've done a LOT of updates to the Doyle line. There are 42 new people, 33 updated people, and 57 new exhibits.  Most of the new exhibits are documents, but there are a few photos too.  There are fare too many changes to detail here, but you'll find the list of new & changed records on the Recent Updates page.  The majority of the changes are in the Hamilton, Jordan, and Kenney families.

I also corrected the New Westminster map by relocating (more accurately) some of the address icons.
