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.

John Broder in Atlin

Elaine Willson sent me a copy of The Atlin Claim of 1 Sept 1900 with a long report on the fire that destroyed much of Atlin, BC on 26 Aug.  This report, and two brief notices in the 22 Sep edition, confirm that John Broder's business was destroyed in that fire.

Lots of changes to the Doyle line

Today I completed changes and additions to 94 people in the Doyle site.  I added the Henry Carty and Elizabeth Dunn family. The bulk of the other changes are to the Michael Jordan family and the John Hamilton family, but there are many others as well.  See the Recent Updates for Nov 12 - 17 for a list of all the changes.

Somehow I stumbled onto my scanty records for Cornelius W Gibson and Elizabeth Clapp. Elizabeth was my gr-gr-grandaunt.  What I had on my site raised some questions, so of course I was off on a search.  The result is a bunch of census records, some death records, and a whole bunch of new data for Cornelius and Elizabeth and their children.  In particular there's a lot of new info for their son  Douglas Samuel Gibson and his family.
