I have probably left it too late. I have several names, numerous photos but very few hard facts to go on. I just wish I had listened more when my mum and my aunts & uncle were alive as some kept in contact with the family until at least 1995. This is what I know - Sarah Ann Savill was my great grandad's sister, born in 1881 in England. She married someone named Harry, whose surname I think was Watkins. Harry & Sarah (known as Sallie) went to Canada about 1910.
I have photos of Gwen, who I think is Harry & Sallie's daughter. There are references to the Hallett family which I think is Gwen's married name. There is also mention of Wilfred's two boys, Harry & Richard. I think Wilfred must have been Sallie's son.
I have a photo of Sallie's grandchildren - Ritchie (probably Wilfred's Richard,) Gerald, Harry and Patsy.
Gwen's 2 children were Pat & Gerald (from another photo)
Pat married Barry Findlay and in 1995 the family lived in Homewood Manitoba. I have 2 letters written by Pat to my uncle Donald Savill in England. Pat & Barry lived on a farm
and they mention wheat, barley, canola and flax. Pat mentions doing crafts and having a craft table in Carman. She also mentions driving up to High River.
Pat and Barry had 3 children - Christine, Clay and Joel. Joel married someone named Lisa in 1996 and they have a son named Jeremy.
I would love to make contact with my Canadian relatives and if anyone can help in any way I'd love to hear from them.
