  1. I have a couple of cousins who’ve done some genealogy work on the Arthur side of my family, I might find your talk interesting. I’m from Perth.

    • Hello Susan – We are related to the Arthur family through marriage – ‘Jim’ Ronald James Arthur, son of William James Arthur and Muriel Cornell – Jim married my first cousin. It’s a small world – particularly as there were so many families that settled in Lanark County, and some remained for generations. It’s interesting the way the families weave in and out, and branch out and connect with so many other families in the area. I’ve got lots of material to cover next Sunday and look forward to meeting lots of people interested in finding out more about their roots.
