Welcome to my web site!

This site will be devoted to my family history. Much of the material is genealogical, but I also intend including relevant historical information.

Two discoveries I have made during my researches so far seemed to me worthy of having their own sections on this site. The first is the photograph album of my great grandmother, Martha, containing photographs of members of some well known Halifax families in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This I have reproduced in full. The second is the life story of her sister Laura who, when her father died, emigrated penniless to America and became one of the first settlers as the vastness of Montana was opened up to homesteaders. So far as I am able I shall tell her story here. Both these sections of the site can be accessed via the links at the top of the page.

As and when I find new information or new areas of interest (and when I get time to create the pages) this site will change and grow, so it may be worth coming back from time to time to check.

If this site has been of interest you may also enjoy some of the linked sites.

I shall be grateful to receive any corrections, additions or further information about anything on this site.
