This free collection coordinated by Diane Wilson over the past 40 years includes records from many and varied sources to assist with your research.
Diane researched and compiled these records over a long period with help from countless contributors. They generously gave their time, sometimes for many years. These volunteers who were not all genealogists donated time to transcribing, typing and collating information to create these indexes.
Diane would like to thank friends and family, especially her late husband, Murray, for their support in producing this novel and unique collection for public.
Also a special thank you to Mark Howard for his long and dedicated technical and innovative support over the years, and to Clearfield Software for their ongoing association with this project.
We hope you will find the information, clues, and pointers helpful.
Best wishes for successful searching.
We would welcome any additions you may have to add to this collection.
Unfortunately we are not in the position to do personal research on entries in this collection but again GOOGLE is your friend.
