Hi,

I see you have photos of your great uncle William Chisholm as a POW.  This is my great grandfather and I'd be grateful if you could send me a copy.  My e-mail address is (*)

Thanks,

Hi everyone,

I hope some of you are on here still as it has been a couple of years since your last post.  I have just started putting together my family history and aren't very sure where to start, but was very pleased when I came across this discussion.  My grandmother is is Eliza (William Chisolm's daughter).  I would be very greatful if some of you could help me fill in some of the gaps.  Margaret - would love to see your tree and your photos.

Thank you

Laura
