Emrick Family Genealogy Forum
I volunteer at the library of the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, which is housed in the City of Ottawa Archives. Braddish BILLINGS, a son of Dr Elkanah BILLINGS was one of the first settlers in what is now the capital of Canada. Braddish's house was left to the city by one of his descendants and has become the Billings Estate Museum. There is considerable interest in the genealogy of the BILLINGS family by visitors to the City Archives and I am attempting to compile a reference chart of the family.
I have traced the Billings line to Lulu May Hislop (b. 1899 Noyan Quebec) who married Phillip Eldridge Emrick (b. 1889 Clarenceville Quebec) and had one son, Stanley Eldridge who married Alice Mann. If this is your family, I wondered if you would like to share information. My database is set up to only show details of people who are no longer living, so I will not pass the information on living descendants to the City Archives. The latest version of the database is now on-line at http://www.ogsottawa.on.ca/billings/. Thanks very much.
