About Me


"Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. 
Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands."
- Linda Hogan


My interest in genealogy began in February 2013 as a result of an assignment for a military history class I was taking at university. Since then, I have become increasingly passionate about discovering the stories in my family's history. I started this blog as a way to collect these stories (and hopefully find cousins!)...

My ancestry is primarily Scottish, Dutch, Norwegian, English, and Danish.

Locations: Netherlands (Andijk, Opperdoes, Enkhuizen), Denmark (Gloslunde, Bostrup), England (Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle/Gateshead, Spaldington), Scotland (Harris, Inverurie), Canada (BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick), USA (Wisconsin, Minnesota, Massachusetts), Norway (Skonseng, Ringebu)

Surnames: Ruiter, Zwier, Verfaille, Groot, Newgard, Rasmussen, Middleton, Hetherington, Breem, McDermit, Leetham, Cook, Churchill, Melvin, McRae, Chisholm, Algar, Erickson, Christensen, Hjelstuen
