    1. [NORTH-NORTHWEST] SMALL Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Percy William SMALL which was taken at the C. H. Howes Studio in Ithaca, NY on 5 June 1891 when he was 6 months old. He was identified as weighing 18 lbs. and being 26 inches in height at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Percy and his family: Percy William SMALL was b. 18 Dec 1890 in Ithaca, NY to parents George "Geo" SMALL (1850-1936) and Delphine Izora SNYDER (1852-1937) who were married in 1882. Percy had two siblings, Arthur James SMALL (1886-1933) and Edith SMALL (1892-1962). Percy died 22 Jul 1914 in New Westminster, BC, Canada and is buried in the Fraser Cemetery there. I am hoping to locate someone from this SMALL Family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    1. [NORTH-NORTHWEST] James Alexander Friend
    2. Marjorie McQuay
    3. I am looking for any information about James Alexander Friend. He was born in Barrie, Ontario March 29, 1874, although his death reg. and 1901 Kamloops census say he was born in New York. His father took his family to Michigan in 1882 after his wife died, and one of James' aunts lived in New York, so he may have forgotten just where he was born. He lived in Prince George sometime in the years before his death at Kamloops Feb. 24, 1940. He is part of my Cameron family tree and I'm am trying to find his brothers William and George Friend as well. Marjorie Cameron McQuay -- I am using the free version of SPAMfighter.

    1. [NORTH-NORTHWEST] Kincolith & Nisga'a Lineage
    2. Carol
    3. Hello List, I'm hoping someone out there will have some information on my Nisga'a family. My G.Grandfather was Chief Albert WALSH (Neash) b. abt. 1851 in Angida (sp?) He traveled to Kincolith with Reverend Tomlinson on the first raft. He was in the first group to be baptized in Kincolith on November 7, 1869. He married Martha BARNES on December 28, 1875. William SMITH married his wife Sarah on December 24, 1875 and both men list their father as "Zawemack" making William & Albert brothers. Albert re-married Jane Turk in 1913 after the death of Martha. He died on September 28, 1914 in Kincolith. Martha BARNES was know before baptism as "Kiedzundaeon/Kedupindaon". Her father was Welcun a.k.a. Adam Barnes. Her mother was Hannah Barnes a.k.a. Nox Catherine. Martha's older sister Catherine married Unknown RYAN and was listed as a widow on the 1881 census along with her children Emily (Emma) age 10, Mary & Elizabeth both age 8, Charles age 5 and Simon 6 months. Martha & Albert had at least three children: Alice b. May 26, 1871, married William J. Matheson December 18, 1890 and died December 1891 in childbirth. Sarah Amelia b. September 29, 1886 - died young and my Grandmother, Catherine Amelia Walsh b. March 10, 1889. The family home was in Kincolith. Martha died on May 3, 1909. My Grandmother was educated at the Metlakatla school and even worked there until 1910. She then worked as a maid for Rev. W.E. Collison in Prince Rupert (1911) and then for Alexander Manson and his family in Prince Rupert (1914). My Grandmother somehow came to Vancouver where she had two children and then married. She died in Vancouver in 1938. I have found all this information on my own as my Grandmother took the story of her heritage to her grave. My mother did not know anything about her mother's heritage - her mother died when she was only sixteen. I would love to become part of the great Nisga'a Nation but without my House & Crest I am not eligible. As my G.Grandparents had girls, the name WALSH has been lost to the ages. If anyone has any knowledge of this family, please contact me. Hopefully, Carol Wright Everything is always ok in the end. If it isn't - then it's not the end!! __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around

    1. New List Management software - Rootsweb
    2. Murray Pletsch
    3. Dear Listers: Rootsweb is changing to new list management software! This list is scheduled to move today. Any differences you notice should be minor: The "-L" is being dropped from the official list name, but you will be able to both sub and post using the "old" name,with the -L, or the new one without it. If you use email headers to filter list mail in your email program, your filters may need adjusting. Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the layout, volume and issue numbers of the list digests. New instructions will be added to the digests -- please read them. If your digests arrive in a different format than you are used to and you would like it changed, contact me. If you are subscribed to the list in both L and D modes using the same email address, you will find that you will no longer be subbed to the Digest after the move. The new software doesn't permit the same address to be subbed in both L and D modes. If you want to continue to be subbed to both the list posts and the digest, you will need to use two different email addresses. If you run into anything unusual or confusing with mail from this list that could be related to the changeover, let me know. Bye for now.......Murray Murray Pletsch <[email protected] *OR* [email protected]>
