Enjoy Your Moments of 2006!

It all started with Robert and Hannah Parr.
They brought their young family to Ontario, Canada about 1834. The (known) children were Lucy, David, George, Emma, Mariah, Harriett, and Frederick - all born in England - with their last child born in Upper Canada (Ontario) - Mary Ellen.

They settled in Mosa Township, Middlesex
County, Ontario during 1842. (Just north of Wardsville, about halfway between Chatham and London, Ontario).

The research being completed follows the lines of son David (1821-1909) (married Jane Duke Johnson), daughter Mariah (1829-1898) (married Robert Tunks), Harriett (1832-1904)(married Jerome Toles) and son Frederick (1833-1900) (married Jane Whiting).

The Dash

The first edition of Our Family Story has been sold out.  Do you want a copy?

This historical research has over 3,400 relatives and growing (see Temporary Unknowns for relatives yet to be found). The life history file (biographies) has passed the 2,000 mark, each in varying degrees of completion, with some on this web site.   I'm looking for the typical genealogical data of names, dates, and places, although to be truly interesting and worthy of anyone's time reading, it's really about the stories! 

It's the stories.  How did your grandparents meet?  How did you wind up living where you are living?  What career choices molded your life?  In preserving our life stories is to honour our individual lives, our experiences, our relationships.

As this family history is what truly interests me, it is my desire to have your  story  (or your dash) and your family photo for you and our family.   It will then be truly a document worthy of honouring the pioneering spirit of Robert and Hannah Parr who came to the New World 175 years ago; little did they know of their over 3 thousand descendants they could claim!

I have met many wonderful people who just happen to be related to me!  There is a treasure trove of interesting stories out there, and finding each and every one has been fascinating ... would you like to start the process

I appreciate your interest with this family history project, and I look forward in learning how you are enjoying your dash!


I thank you for your interest in the family of Robert and Hannah Parr.
