I want to thank you for your hospitality when I visited you at Lake Bronson last month. My visit at the Kittson County Historical Museum, and with you and Cindy Adams, was a highlight of my recent travels back to my home ground. You should be proud of the genealogical work you have done and of what is available now for research at the museum. It is an excellent contribution to those of us interested in learning and preserving our family histories. Thank you!
Hi Glenn, One of the things you might try is posting an article in the Southern
Reporter newspaper in Selkirk . Just tell them you are looking for your family and give them some of your genealogy. I had done this before and had gotten
only one response but she was a great help.
Thanks Glenn, I thought that is what I did. I did put some space between the comments and the code so maybe I accidently removed some of the code in the process. I see I got the photo up with out comments so next time, I will be more careful.
Yes, the Norman Hotel is gone, and in its place is a huge monstrosity of an apartment building. While it has changed and developed along the highway, the heart of Norman remains much the same. I don't see Bruce Vaudry in the phone book, so perhaps you are right. The name certainly rings a bell, but I haven't heard it for a long time.
Thank you for getting in touch, Glenn! I drive through Norman every day on my way to work.
My Scotts were, according to my historian great-aunt, from Fife. My own research indicates that they were more likely from Wilton parish area in Roxburgh. James Scott m. Janet Bleakie in 1822 (I have not found records to confirm this, nor do I know where they were married). The couple emigrated to Burnbrae, ON in 1834 with two children (I have not yet found their birth info).
