Kerri: We have more Family Pages for your lineage at the following links.
Your Great-great-great-great grandparents:
JOSEPH TURNER (1782-1865)
Your Great-great-great grandparents:
PHILIP TURNER (1812-1882)
I do have information for the rest of your lineage as well: Joseph Alexander TURNER (1838-1919) and Archibald TURNER (1881-1957), but have not created Family Pages for them yet because they are not on my Priority List at this time.
I often do Special Family Pages for people who make donations. More about that at this link:

Hello Turnor descendants,
I have just completed a biography on Philip Turnor called MAPMAKER: PHILIP TURNOR IN RUPERT'S LAND IN THE AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT. It will be available October 14, 2017 and is published by the University of Regina Press. Readers will find new information on birth, death and marriage dates, on his parentage, his journeys, and especially his last three years in Rupert's Land when there developed a serious "breach of trust" between him and William Tomison. There is new material on his 1794 map and on his employment in London following his retirement from the HBC.
Philip Turnor and his Cree wife are my 4X great-grandparents and my lineage is through Joseph Turner and Emma to Charlotte Turner and James Harper to Nancy Harper and John Low Loutit.
Regards,

Barbara Mitchell

Thank you Gary.
I hope there are still some Turnor descendants who check out this site from time to time. I would like to hear from them.

Thanks for adding a page for Joseph Alexander Turner & Jane Whitford!

Question: How do I contact other members in this forum? I added people to my friends list, but I can't see where there's a "button" to contact them directly. I'd like to swap information with a few of them, as I'm working on a Philip Turnor family history document (for the last year!).

hello kprimorac,
You might find my biography helpful. It will be out at the beginning of October through the University of Regina Press. However I primarily deal with Philip Turnor himself, not his descendants. I mention my own lineage and have a genealogical chart at the beginning showing the line but not all the siblings.
Just so you know: my information shows that Philip Turnor was baptized Nov 1752 so was likely born that year. I have not found any information of the name of his Cree wife. Elizabeth is the name of his English wife.

When I am finished with this book I amy begin research on the Loutit/Harper families, but it is too much right now.

Thanks for your interest,

Barbara

Hi Barbara,

I am looking forward to getting a copy of your book when it comes out next month! I have a pretty decent history of Philip's Descendants. I've been researching for the last year and a half, and have found many resources! I'm currently working with a genealogist from St. Paul, who is also a descendant of Philip's.

What we don't know is anything about Philip & John's English family. So I'm hoping that's in your book.

I found the Hudson's Bay Company archives and the Canadian Federal Archives particularly helpful, along with this site. I've been looking at all ties into the Turner family, and thanks to this site, I had a basis to start the search!

Hi all,

Also very much looking forward to your book, Barbara! I wish I lived near to where you are having your book launches as I would love to be there for those events.

Geni is trying to build a world family tree -it's free to join. Everyone builds their own family tree, and where there are matching profiles, the profiles are merged and the family trees are joined and the merged profiles are managed by both parties. In some ways, it's a bit like Wikipedia -the benefit of shared knowledge with the con of editing wars. Philip Turnor's profile can be found here: https://www.geni.com/people/Philip-Turn ... 1077223042 As you can see there are some inconsistencies, but it does provide a good way to connect with other descendants. Geni also allows you to upload DNA from other sites. I have mine there from FamilyTreeDNA. Would love to see a DNA project involving the descendants of Philip Turnor (I'm not sure how these projects work, but there are a number of them on FTDNA).

jlwiebe94, thanks for the link to geni. I started mine on MyHeritage.ca, but it only lets me put in 200 people, and I quickly ran out before I was even done my parents generation! Do you know if there's a limit on the free account for geni?
