from a story by Alice Adeline Southam Cook (20 July 1889 - 15 January 1980
MABEL WAS BORN The mumps going down on me did not affect me like it does some people as our first daughter, Mabel, was born the following January 11, (1914) at 10:25 AM. It was Sunday morning and those going to Sunday School saw Dr. Heber Robinson come to our home. The neighbors were anxious to hear what we had and several of them told me that they were about as happy as we were when they heard we had a girl. She was a tiny little thing weighing only five and one half pounds. Sadie Drysdale was the nurse.
[The relation to the Cook family was one of Henry Drysdale's sister's Rose Minette Drysdale had married a fellow named Freemont Cook who had later removed to McGrath ,Canada.]

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
