So… First off, I have more information, as usual, than I can process, and I’m a little tired right now so if I miss updating anyone or anything I’m super sorry! I think we’re going to get snow tomorrow, I have a feeling!

Spent all night tonight talking with cousins up here in the Great White North. I’m not sure what we’ve got… But there’s a lot of research to be done, that’s for sure! Lots of leads… Lots of future research possibilities.
We learned that Leo Campbell was a volunteer fire fighter, which is interesting with his sister Annette having saved lives from that fire in Timmins that was reported in the paper there. He also spent some time in Noranda, Quebec. Ironically where some of our Grahams were buried that we can’t locate… I sense a field trip coming on! We need to get to Timmins too… You know, in every one’s spare time.

We took some photos of Eva McKenna’s grave – Although we have much better ones taken by Murray! And we managed to get some of Alexander Smith as well… So there’s additions to be made to trees all over the place, but the McKenna – Campbell tree for sure. Lots of progress… Family stories too, I’m really interested in getting more together as far as these family stories… Maybe making a file or something.

I have several new names we’re going to end up adding to the family files… Lots of new fun things. But for tonight, I’m going to head to bed because I’m getting foggy with names and dates with being so tired. It’s Thanks Giving up here tomorrow for all of us Canadians, so I’d like to take a moment to wish everyone out there a very happy Thanks Giving. I wish you all the blessing of family, friendship, love and good company over the holidays.

Happy Thanks Giving from all of us at the Closet Skeleton Genealogical Society!
