Re: WILLIAM NORN (1825-1902)

My brick wall: finding the parents and family of William Norn. William NORN's HBC bio indicates his parish to be South Ronaldsay.

Re: WILLIAM NORN (1825-1902)

Thank you Gary for your response to my query regarding the two William NORNs that are often confused. The addition of the Family Page for William and Sarah NORN is wonderful! The Magnus BIRSTON pages help clarify that the William NORN married to Catherine Birston is not the William Norn married to S...

Re: BIRSTON, Magnus and Catherine; William Norn; Denney Pape

Hello Thank you for the great notes regarding William and Sarah! The 1891 census of William and Sarah at Lac la Biche lists grandchildren Donald and Harriet. They are children of William and Sarah's daughter Margaret and and her husband Peter BAHAN. The original doc is very faint, poorly written and...

Re: JAMES PETER WHITFORD (1766-1818)

Like the Magnus Spence family, I had some names and dates for the Whitfords - the details you have given now certainly fill in many blanks. Again, thank you so very much! I am so ...
