Documents, Durham & Dainty Dinah
Posted On 12/11/2015 00:39:08 by yourchoice
My husband’s father was 19 years old when he emigrated to Canada from Chester-le-Street, a village near Durham in Northern England. He traveled on a cargo ship from Liverpool, England to Halifax, Nova Scotia, then continued west by train, looking for homestead land. He had studied Animal Husbandry in England, and thought the only job he would ever enjoy would to be a farmer. He eventually settle in the province of Saskatch-ewan, met a lovely French lady, and soon had three sons. In his persona... Read More



D - Dinosaurs in Drumheller

It seems that there is a much greater interest in dinosaurs during my lifetime. Young children can remember the oddest names for those prehistoric animals, and many have a bag full of toys to play dinosaur stories with their friends.When I was growing up, there was this large dinosaur at the Calgary Zoo, and we always looked forward to having some time to climb up the tail. In the last few years, the Zoo has upgraded the Prehistoric Park and it has become a highly favored spot for family fun.The... Read More

What Is The Cost of Dual Citizenship?
Posted On 01/28/2014 17:23:31 by yourchoice
My story began in the early ‘80s (or so I thought) when we closed our family business in Western Canada, and considered moving to the U.S. to join friends who had moved there two years earlier. Our daughter had been accepted to a U.S. College in Indiana, which was quite an independent choice of hers. In considering our options, we learned of a little known U.S. law that stated that anyone born before 1947 of U.S. born parents, could receive their U.S. Citizenship without any category attached,...

Searching for history
Posted On 01/16/2014 15:24:11 by Derrough
I'm writing this today to ask for any information that any NOTH member may have on the early history of Oro Township, Ontario, Canada. The Oro-Medonte Township history Committee is looking for anecdotes, family stories, memories and photographs particularly pre-1950 pertaining to the African Episcopalian Methodist Church on the corner of the Old Barrie Road and the 3rd Concession of Oro Township. Of particular interest are photographs showing the church prior to the circa 1945 restoration, and a... Read More
