What's New for month of January 2014
It's time to catch up on My What's New Activities since Dec 2013. part 1
I have recently begun trying to organize and put together information concerning my family roots. Your name was suggested to me as a possible source of information, or you might be able to refer me to someone who has information that could help.
I am presently working with notes that my grandmother recorded of what she could remember of family history. As she recorded her information when she was up in years, I am sure there are inaccuracies. However, this is where I am starting.
Her notes indicate that her great-grandparents, Andrew Fraser (1819 - 1871) and Flora McRae (1816 - 1894), are buried in Kirkhill Cemetery, near Alexandria. She also noted Flora's parents as John McRae (1784 - 1868) and Janet Cameron (1795 - 1892).
Any information that you could confirm or expand upon would be greatly appreciated.
I am trying to locate a map of the original Cornwall Township (ca. 1787) that shows the names of the land owners, and then later maps with land owners names in the period 1810, 1820, 1830, if they exist. I would appreciate your telling me if they exist and where I can get the maps.
