Why do you think they came?

I have been working on my family tree and have run across many of my family having come to the US from England to Canada's Prince Edward Island and then to St Vincent where my grandfather was born. Why did they come to St Vincent? I imagine it was a big draw because of lumbering, but I know nothing of the area.I have Clows in  my family tree that came from PEI to St Vincent.My great grand aunt, Harriet Edkins married Hammond Willis Clow.Why did they come and why did my family leave in 1919?…See More

I want to apologize to those of you who are upset about the Kittson County Historical Society being affiliated with a certain member on this page.  I was completely unaware that this person was even a member of this site.  This site is for genealogy & historical purposes only and anyone can join.   We, at the Kittson County Historical Society, do not know the backgrounds of every person or even know who many of the members are.  This certain member has now been suspended from this site. …

Hello Katharina and welcome

I was afraid I had some how missed your town when I had quickly scanned through all the places and typed them up, but I found you on page four of the list.   Hit " see more" to view the complete list of place names. Amazing how the power of the internet can let us communicate back and forth across the ocean in seconds.  What our grandparents would have given to have such a fantastic method of hearing from family left behind when they ventured forth to a "new land"!   Thanks, Louise
