Kittson profiles and photos from the past and present
I had an idea last night. I would dearly love to do a 'Family Tree' of Kittson County. I can't speak for your families (although I am aware of several of your families that this would apply to...), but in our family, there are several marriages into other 'original' families. What I'm talking about, is the main migration in the mid to late 1800s. Those families, especially those coming from the same area (i.e., Prince Edward Island, Ontario, etc.) commonly married into other families from that same area. There were (and still are to a degree) of relation between families because of this. It would a lot of fun to create such a family tree based on, say, those alive mid-last-century (around 1950). Marcy Johnson, what do you think? I was thinking that we could start by looking at the various cemetery surveys you've done, and start linking that way. It's a massive project, but I think it would be quite fun. It could be then graphically produced on a large poster mounted on foam board, and be displayed at the Kittson County Museum...
