hi Cat long time no talk have you ever been able to find more family connection or history on the Drysdale? One of my grand father is David Drysdale. of course many of my relatives on both side are related. I believe my arriere arriere grand mother would of been is second wife. Lots of activities on the Miramichi, Halifax, or county of Halifax which included Miramichi at the time before it became a province. have you ever had a look at Charlotte Taylor's website? she was a pioneer and wrote lots about times on the MIRAMICHI, Tabusintac, Bartibog, Les Micmacs and of course my grand father Drysdale is mentioned in her writing. I know that city ot towns of Nelson, Chatham, Newcastle or Miramichi archives, church has records of our ancestors. University of Moncton, University Fredericton and Bathurst holds all or some valuable information to satisfied a appetite for genealogy reseach. it has been a while since I devoted time on doing more research yet I would love to get back into this.

Allo Catherine, Je suis originaire du Nord du NB, le meme vieux William Drysdale est le meme commun grand pere du coter de ma mere et aussie de mon pere. C'est par example c'est 2 garcons, qui sont 2 de mes arriere grand peres, Il habitais dans la region de Miramichi, Douglastown, Nelson, Newcastle et Chatham. Je pense exactement Nelson. Tout cette region longtemps passer s'appellais le compter de Halifax. Il n'y avais pas de province du Nouveau Brunswick. Il n'y avais pas encore un pays, ils etais tous des immigrants en d'ecouverte du Nord d'Amerique.L'Angleterre avais donner des morceaux de terre. Mes 2 grend peres, je crois qu'il sont nommer David et William Junior, et il y a un frere Robert quelque part. Il y a 3 freres, Il venais de l'Angleterre mais le pere William a eter nee en Ecosse. Je me perd quand sa vient d'aller voir le 17th et plus loin. L'histoire tres difficile mais je suis tres fier d'avoir leur sang. Je ne suis pas surpris tellement car j'allais a l'ecole avec des Drisdelle et j'aimais un beau garcon qui portait le nom Drysdelle. il etais beau, cheveux noir et bazoner avec des lunette, il habitais a Sheila. Il etait problablement mon cousin. Je l'aimais beaucoup. Je pense que cet' homme William mon arierre grand pere etais super intelligent. L'eglise a Catholic a Chatham a une histoire incroyable, des copies de signatures qui vaut la peine d'aller voir. Ils y a aussie les Huguenots qui ont venue par France mais origine de Autriche. Leurs histoires et leur noms est tres visible dans cette eglise comme i.e ( Breau, Brault, Robichaud ect). Labas a Miramichi il y a beaucoup d'information pour quelqu'un qui veut chercher leur heritages. Enchanter de vous faire part. Anne marie

Welcome to our group, Catrine

I have not come across your version of Drisdelle/Drysdale before. When did the spelling variation come about?
You may be interested in joining the Drysdale group...

Yours aye,

William

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?
