I would be interested in connecting by e mail to any member of the Samuel Foulds Family. Samuel was my Great Great Grandfather.
My Grandfather was Alexander Herbert Foulds son of David Foulds. I am also looking for the history of my Great Uncle Robert George Foulds who left Canada for the US. Thank you Allan asjoh@aol.com

Thanks Allan. I have all those references and more. I may eventually do Family Pages for these people, but for now they just aren’t on my Priority List. More about my Priority List that at this link:

Thier son is Robert (Bob) Foulds (B:1855) married to Jane Howse. What do you think? Regards: Barry
