I just read your post. I have started doing my father's family history about 3 months ago. I just received a lot of pictures from my grandmother (Mrs. Edith Learn - who wrote articles for the Welland paper). We also had the family farm in Bertie Twsp that was crown land when my family moved there - I also have the family bible from our side of the family. We are decended from John to Peter B. to Benjamin, to Peter, Alanson to James Alexander to my Dad Charles B. Anyway it was interesting because one of the pictures is identified as Beattie and I had not come across that name as yet. I also have a lot of letters that my grandmother wrote about the Learn/Findley's coming to Canada. My grandmother Edith Learn was a Sherk and I also have info from her family. I have my family history back to Germany for the Learn's but am looking for pictures and stories on any of the family. If you do read this and send me your e-mail, I will send you a copy of the very old picture of a man (professional taken picture) with "To Maggie from Alex Beattie" on the back if this means anything to you. According to the Web site, the Photographer was in business in 1865.
