For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in family history and genealogy. I have been compiling information on the various branches of my family tree since I was a teenager. This blog is my forum for sharing what I have uncovered over the past 20 years of off and on research.
Most of my research is centered on the four main branches of my family tree – St. John, Coulman, Fee, Hunter – and other associated families (including Davey, Summerville, Lusty, Salter, Thomas, Ansted, Burton, Doan and Oakley). To date, the majority of my research has been focused in Ontario and Quebec in the 1800s but I am starting to move back across the ocean to England, Ireland and Palatine Germany in the 1800s and earlier. I am hopeful that some of this research will be of use to others and will help me connect with a long lost cousin or two! If you think we have a connection, please leave a comment or email (jen (at) jenasmart (dot) com) me.
